Loving the app but problem with preview

I'm really new at this and am enjoying practising what I'm learning on the iPad, but I've noticed that some css effects, for example :hover don't show up on the preview. Am I doing something wrong? The same code works fine on the PC.

Textastic uses iOS's UIWebView which is the same WebKit engine as used by Safari on iPad. 

There are some differences in mobile browsers when compared to desktop browsers. For example, ":hover" doesn't make much sense on touch devices, because there is no cursor that could hover over an element. The browser doesn't know the location of the user's finger before he actually taps.
