    a:link visited/active - not working - why? please help

    Please help. For some reason the a:link visited is not working
    I need the background of the link to be black when visited/active and instead it reverts back to original colour - this is annoying because u cant tell what page u are on unless the link is black

    Here is the HTML

    HTML Code:
    <!DOCTYPE html>
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />
    <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=edge" />
    <meta name="description" content="Intranet Home Page"/>
    <meta name="author" content="Leanne Taylor" />
    <meta name="robots" content="index, follow" />
    <link href="CSS/layout.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" media="screen" />
    <link href="CSS/links.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" media="screen" />
    <body background="" id="coshh">
    <div id="homewrapper"> 
    <img src="logo/newlogo.jpg" alt="Logo" title="Logo" width="200" height="160" class="floatImageLeft" />
