Hi, can you make your question more specific? What styles exactly do you need?

Regards,
Rich

You can use all the style attribute with Hyper links by specifying as follows:
A.link
{
......
}
A.vlink
{
....
}
A.alink
{
....
}
A.hover
{
....
}

That won't work. I think you were going for this:

a:link {

}
a:visited {

}
a:hover {

}
a:active {

}

A:link used for showing what will happen with <a>
A:hover user for showing what will happen with <a> when a mouse across it
A:active used for showing what will happen with <a> after clicked (active)
A:visited used for showing what will happen with <a> after visited

Just wanted to point out that a capital 'A' in the style sheet and a lowercase 'a' in the markup may bring unexpected results. Especially if you are going for XHTML compatibility, which is case sensitive and requires lowercase markup. Best to keep it consistent.

Also just noticed that this last example doesn't follow the LoVe HAte mnuemonic device. These pseudo-classes must appear in a particular order in the style sheet because of both what they do and the cascade. A style for an unvisited link using the :link pseudo class comes first, followed by the style for visited links (:visited), this must be followed by the :hover pseudo, which in turn must be followed by the :active pseudo.

In the following scenario:

a:link {
    color: red;
}
a:visited {
    color: orange;
}
a:hover {
    color: yellow;
}
a:active {
    color: black;
}

Because of the cascade each of the selectors have the same specificity [1]. This ordering of the rules allows all of these colors to be seen when the appropriate event is fired off.

Shouldn't that be LoVe For HAte to accommodate for the (barely supported) :focus pseudo class??

Ha yes, I belive Gecko is the only one currently supporting :focus on hyperlinks. Opera does not allow a hyperlink to receive focus. IE allows a hyperlink to receive focus, but doesn't support the :focus pseudo. Maybe KHTML supports it as well, but I don't have it in front of me ATM.
