Basic Css help Currently trying to make a basic website, and I want my secondary nav to have links that are white with a black background, but turn black with a white rectangle around them when you hover over one. I managed to fix the links coming up blue and got them to white, but the text stopped turning black when I hover over it so it's now just a white box due to the text also being white. The CSS I'm using for the left col: What it's looking like: (I don't know why my cursor didn't show up in the SS but it's hovering over the white rectangle) What am I doing wrong :~(
