CSS Question

how do i hide anchor text without hiding the anchor

say I have the following markup:

<li><a href="somehwere">Link text</a></li>

If i have a background image on the a tag how would I hide the link text using just css? font-size:0 seems to work fine on the a tag apart from in ie7 little blobs show.


  • Thanks for help so far iv used line-height: 0; and font-size:0; and text-indent: -999px; but it still shows up some blobs in safari, any ideas?

    line-height: 0; 
    font-size: 0;
    color: transparent; 

The color: transparent; covers an issue with Webkit browsers still displaying 1px of the text.
