Forget the Css and pseudo classes then, how about - onmouseover, onmouseout, onclick, onfocus and onblur? Do these work?
It's like my GPS died and I'm trying to learn how to read a map again ;)
TT, thanks for the warning about things going Poof! Even when following "standard operating procedures" it seems things can go "Poof!" at times!
the use of inline CSS is not encouraged for the foregoing reason, and because Staff would be flooded with complaints about the failure of inline CSS to operate - inline CSS that the Staff did not recommend using in the first place.
Which is why I asked on the forums ;) I think staff is pretty good about expressing that certain things aren't supported by WordPress.
Simply a , "Sorry, we don't support that feature" would suffice? or "While we do not provide custom programming support, we've assembled the following guides as a reference to help you get started."
In fact, looking at the Custom CSS support page - http://en.support.wordpress.com/custom-design/custom-css/
Making the best of this feature requires some experience with CSS and HTML, or at least a willingness to learn. See the CSS Help section further down this page for more information.

With all that said, I may end up getting the CSS upgrade. Just sucks to pay $30/yr for one feature that I may or may not decide to use. I'm on a slo-fi internet connection and the Css previews don't work so well for me.
Thanks for all the help you guys provide on not only on the forums but your blogs as well. I would of already given up I think if I wouldn't of found them in the beginning.
@Panos - I wish you had a search box on every page of your website instead of just the homepage. I keep having to go back to it every time I need to look up something! ;)
