jo (blonde to the bone) -
for those times when you want to have a little more control over the
appearance of your links (instead of default decoration or no decoration):
color:#0000ff; text-decoration: none;
color:#cc0000; text-decoration: none;
color:#663366; text-decoration: underline;
color:#009900; text-decoration: underline;
mix and match. whatever. you can do a lot of other formatting as well
(bold, size, etc) but I am only showing link color and underline on or off here.
... just in case you might need it.
(edited to indicate the proper order)
