css in netscape

Hello there. I've got the following CSS :-
 font-family: Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
 font-size: 10pt;
 font-weight: bold;
 color: #ffffff;
 FONT {font-size:10pt; font-family:verdana, arial; color:#ffffff;
font-weight: bold}

a:hover{color: #FFFF00; font-family:Verdana, arial; font-size:10pt;
text-transform:uppercase;  font-weight:900}

That means that when the mouse hovers over a link it changes colour from
white to yellow, capitalizes the text and increases the weight to 900. This
works fine in IE and opera but NOT in netscape. The final font weight change
doesn't happen. It just stays bold not extra bold. Can anyone possibly
explain why please this should be? What on Earth is happening?

Does the font-weight: bold works on the FONT tag?

I'm not sure what you mean. The font-weight bold works on the FONT tag in
the sense that whenever this tag is used the text is automatically displayed
bold in both IE and netscape.
It's just the a:hover transformation that doesn't work in netscape. The link
doesn't become extra bold (weight 900) is just stays bold.
Any ideas? Can't netscape display text at weights other than standard bold?

That's a possibility.  I suspect it's system and font dependent as
well as browser dependent, though.

Also, changing font weight (thus changing the width) on hover can
cause problems, so it may decide not to.  Don't remember Netscape
doing that, though.
