I used a scaffold to create an interface. I'm trying to style it and
I'm having trouble. In my css I have:

#content a, a:link, a:visited{
  color: #ff8400;
#content a:hover{
  background: #ff8400;
  color: #FFFFFF;

#content a.urgent, a.urgent:link, a.urgent:visited {
  color: #FF0000;
#content a.urgent:hover {
  color: #FFFFFF;
  background: #FF0000;

#content input.m_title{
  font-weight: bold;
  font-size: 28px;
  padding: 3px;

The style for the links works, but not for the .urgent class. Also the
style for the input.m_title will not work. When I view the source the
class is written right too:
<a href="/galleries/1" style="urgent">Destroy</a>
and <input style="m_title" id="gallery_name" name="gallery[name]"
size="80" type="text" value="Camp 09" />

<a href="/galleries/1" style="urgent"> has to be
<a href="/galleries/1" class="urgent">

(style => class)

It's not supposed to be 'style', it's 'class'.

<a href="/galleries/1" class="urgent">Destroy</a>
and <input class="m_title" id="gallery_name" name="gallery[name]"
size="80" type="text" value="Camp 09" />
