    Do you mean the highlight color when you left-click on text and drag the mouse?

    If that's the case, those colors are determined by the user's system preferences, not by CSS. I don't know of any way you can change that with CSS.

    If you're talking about changing the background color of a link, here's how to do it.

    a:hover {
    background-color: red;

    The :hover is a psuedo-class for the anchor tag, for when the mouse hovers over the link.

    You could also apply that background-color: color; property to almost any HTML tag.

    If that's not what you were aiming for, my apologies.

    That will probably be available in CSS 3. But that is not a finished spec and it normally takes about 3-5 years before most users have upgraded to new browsers (if we assume all new browsers correctly implement the spec, eg MS IE is slow with that sometimes...)
