This is the source i found on my posts page:

div.post-headline h1 a:hover {
color: #000000;
background-color: #f8fbbd
text-decoration: none; }

Apparently I've not done something correct because it will work on the PAGE links (which is handy to find in the theme options), but I can't seem to get it to function on the actual posts headline.

I'm basically trying to get that yellow color to show up in the background in the hover state.

OK... your solution worked perfectly. I just need to only change it in the hover state though.

added this and it worked!!

div.post-headline h1 a:hover,
div.post-headline h2 a:hover{
background: #F8FBBD;

thank you again for the "fishing" lesson!
