The culprit is the space between "link" and ":hover".

nav a:hover{color:#32673f;}
nav link:hover{color: #32673f;}

heres an example.... a:hover { color: #cc0000; font-weight: bold; text-decoration: none; }

Still not working when i try nav link:hover , I do not think that the word 'link' should be there. here is what I am trying:

nav a { color: #fff; }

nav a:hover { color: 32673f; }

Does not work even after II retype it to make sure my spaces are righht
