    I don't know what "icky" tags are, but to answer your 2nd question: yes, you can specify certain links to be underlined and others to not...this is done using CSS (cascading style sheets)...EchoDev.com has a great tutorial on this, you can find it here:

    Hope that helps! If you have a simple knowledge of HTML you should have no problem with CSS.

    Nothing will override your font tags except CSS. There is nothing icky about CSS though. It can greatly decrease the maintenance and load times of your pages. Font tags have also been deprecated. This means they won't be in future version of HTML related specifications such as XHTML 2.0. It also means that browsers adhering to standards won't have to support them. Future browsers will support CSS as a better means of presentation and layout.

    Since the security certificates of pre-4 version browsers are expiring and they can't support even half of what is available on the Internet today then backwards compatibility is becoming less of an issue.
