I have written most of my css and cant seem to figure out where I went wrong and why a:active is not working. I just cant get it to work in my nav bar.

Im hoping one of you talented designers can tell me where I went wrong and give some tips on fixing it. Heres the code.

#Menu {
	bottom: 0;
	position: absolute;
	left: 0;
	background-image: url(../images/grad2.gif);
	background-repeat: repeat-x;
	background-position: bottom;

#Menu ul {
	margin-top: 0px;
	margin-right: 0;
	margin-bottom: 0;
	margin-left: 0px;

#Menu li {
	background: url(../images/grad2.gif) repeat-x center #2A703C;
	list-style: none;
	border-right-width: thin;
	border-right-style: solid;
	border-right-color: #FFFFFF;

#Menu li a {
	padding:6px 20px 0;

#Menu li ul {
	width: auto;
	position: absolute;
	clear: left;
	top: 30px;
	left: -1px;
	display: none;
	text-align: left;
	font-size: 0.9em;
	background: transparent;
	z-index: 1;
	background: #EAEAEA;
	border: 1px solid #C5C5C5;
	border-top: 0;
	margin: 0;

#Menu li ul li {
	clear: both;
	color: white;
	text-align: left;
	background: transparent;
	margin: 0;
	background: transparent;

#Menu li ul li a {
	padding: 5px 10px 5px 10px;
	font-size: 1em;
	text-align: left;
	margin: 0;
	width: 150px;
	height: auto;
	background: transparent;

#Menu li ul li a:hover {
	text-decoration: none;
	color: #296C3A;

#Menu li:hover a, #Menu li.over a{
	background: url(../../images/red/grad2-1.gif) repeat-x top #626A69;

#Menu li ul li a, #Menu li.over li a {
	text-decoration: none !important;

#Menu li ul li a:hover {
	text-decoration: underline !important;

#Menu li:hover ul, #Menu li.over ul {
	display: block;

#Menu a:active {
	background: url(../images/grad2-2.gif) repeat-x top #2A703C;

Any help is greatly appreciated

I like to help... But maybe other user know better the answer...

#Menu li:hover a, #Menu li.over a { background: url(../../images/red/grad2-1.gif) repeat-x top #626A69; }

the css above points to a different folder to all the others, 2parents/images intead of parent/images
