I wonder if you could help me with the following: I’m new to building Web sites (I started 3 days ago!) and the problem I have is small but annoying. When defining rules for links, I am able to change the “hover” color but not the link color. When previewed in IExplorer, the link color insists on being purple when I’ve defined it as blue. Can you tell me what I’m doing wrong?
Hope to hear from you.
I’m guessing you’re seeing the visited link color in IE because you’ve already “visited” those links.
There are four color settings for links and you need to change all four. And keep in mind that you can use the same color for both active and visited links if you don’t want the color to appear to change after someone has visited the page.
On my website, you’ll find a tutorial on how to use CSS to create styles for links formatted in an Unordered List, which is a popular way to create navigation bars. Here’s a tutorial on how to style a navigation bar of links with CSS. In this tutorial, you’ll learn about how to define styles for each of the four link states.
