I want to add a class to my css if a category is displayed but I can't get it to work.

I added this to my header:

<?php if ( is_category('areas')) { echo ' class="myclass" '; } ?>>

I want to add this class to my stylesheet to any page in this category so It changes the look of any page in that category. It isn't working though.

Ive read through a lot of the codex and this is all I can figure to do

Any suggestions?
Rob

is_category only works for the category level page itself. Use in_category for anything within that category so:

is_category('areas') || in_category('areas')
