iBooks ignoring a:link css style

Hi, I'm trying to give a ePub links within iBooks a custom color, but it seems they are being ignored.

I have an external style sheet with the following code:

.contact-web {
text-align: left;
font-size: 0.8em;
font-weight: bold;
margin-bottom: 0em;
-webkit-hyphens: none;
}

.contact-web a {color:#000;text-decoration:none;}
.contact-web a:visited {color:#000;text-decoration:none;}
.contact-web a:hover {color:#000;text-decoration:none;}
.contact-web a:active {color:#000;text-decoration:none;}


And the code I'm trying to link it to within my html is:

<p class="contact-web">For more information, please visit <a href="http://www.mysite.com">www.mysite.com</a></p>


Is it possible to change the color of an ePub hyperlink that works within iBooks?

Thanks

Why don't you just use the following definition in your stylesheet.
Code:
a {
color:#000;
text-decoration:none;
}
That would be sufficient.

Yes, that's what I thought. It works on ADE, but when you take it into iBooks on the iPad the link goes back to the default purple.

Shouldn't color codes be like these, "color:#000000;" (hex), or "color:rgb(0,0,0);" (rgb value), or "color:black;" (color name)?

You're right, all these declarations are valid, but #000 as well.

If I were Allen, i would try any of these.

3 digit Hex values are also viable. It's a short-hand for double digits. Saves 3 bytes!

em { color: #69b } /* #rgb */
em { color: #6699bb } /* #rrggbb */

See:

iBooks does what iBooks wants. And that isn't always the way we think it should work.

Valid, yes. But not necessarily supported. I've read that some renderers don't support three digit hex so I avoid it and stick with the six digit.

I haven't managed to get the css to control the a:link color within iBooks. But have found out that putting a <span> around the text, inside the <a> tags lets you define a colour.

Probably not ideal. But it did the job for me.

That is typical iBooks... A lot of unnecessary <span> tags required.
