Re: Hover over text (no link) changes background color not in IE?

I'm slowly getting back into webdesign and I'm not sure I'm doing it right.
I have 2 sentences of spoiler text on my page which I've coloured black,
only when you move the mouse over it the color should be switched to make
the line readable. I've used this:

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">
#spoiler {
background: #000000;
color: #000000;

#spoiler:hover {
background: #FFFFFF;

Works fine in FF2 and Opera 9, how do I make it work in IE? TIA!
If spoiler is NOT an A element with an HREF attribute (i.e., a link)
:hover pseudo class will not work is <IE7.

JavaScript is the usual IE work-a-round. Stinks doesn't it?

Take care,
