You can use CSS to change the appearance and behavior of hyperlinks.
To do this, you can use the following selectors/pseudo-classes:
These selectors/pseudo-classes represent the 'anchor' element (specified using the HTML
<a> tag) and its various states.
Here's an example of the code that you might insert into a style sheet to achieve the desired effect.
Note that the
a:hover must be placed after the
a:visited rules, since otherwise the cascading rules will hide the effect of the
a:hover rule. Similarly, because
a:active is placed after
a:hover, the active color (red) will apply when the user both activates and hovers over the 'anchor' element.
Hyperlinks with no underline
It can confuse your users if your hyperlinks aren't underlined. A more usable solution would be only to apply this behaviour to hyperlinks only when users hover over them.
Modify the following code then press "Refresh" to see your own changes on the fly.
