Kyank-
Thanks alot. I guessed CSS would probably do it, but most of the info I found was kind of confusing. I don't think confusion over the links will be a problem since the active and visted colors will be the same and show up fine on both backgrounds. It is just the unvisited link that I was having problems with, and I hope using a light shade of blue and normal blue will work. I know what you mean though--one of my web pet peeves is links that are meant to be obvious but don't look like links and text that looks like a link but isn't ! But you guys can be the judge. 'Cause once I get a few things done on the site I'd like to have it reviewed here (already got 3+ reviews in). Thanks again .
--Bill
