    Hey all i need to know how i go about changing the link color for various links on a page.

    I have a section that is one color that when it's link is another. but the linked color does not look well on another portion of the page.

    i'd love to provide a URL but i'm not quite ready for it yet.

    <a href="/someotherurl"><font color="link color 2">go here too</font></a>

    If you plan on using CSS on your site use the following code(s):

    This is a general CSS link rollover code:
    <style>
    <!--
    A:link {text-decoration: none; color: "#0052ff";}
    A:visited {text-decoration: none; color:"#0052ff";}
    A:hover {text-decoration: none; color: "black"}
    A:active {text-decoration: none; color:"black";}
    -->
    </style>

    Now, rather than just those codes, make them look like the following:
    A.Test:link {TEXT-DECORATION: none; color: white }
    Notice that we have changed the A:link to A.Test:link. Now, change the new rollover colors etc. for .Test and remember to add the .Test after the A. (You can name it A.Whatever)

    Ok, when you make an anchor and you want it to show the "A.Test" colors, simply add class="test" somewhere in the anchor code.

    Hope this helps!
