how do I change hyperlink colours in HTML

Posted by Chris_Isaac (Chris Isaac), 29 July 2003

I'm trying to change some hyperlink colours on my page, but not others.  What I have is basically several images as hyperlinks and have set LINK, ALINK and VLINK to the same colour as the background (done this in the body bit), so there are no 'boxes' around the images.  Fine so far, but I have other hyperlinks (just text) which become invisible.  

Is it possible to change some hyperlink colours, but not others.  I have tried putting more LINK, etc in the other hyperlink fields but it doesn't work, also tried changing the Text colour, but that didn't work either.

I think you can do it with styles, but I don't have my books at hand (I'm away training this week).  However - a better solution would be to turn off the link box around the images which you can do with a BORDER=0 in the IMG tag and leave all your text links in a single colour.

Thats perfect, thats exactly what I wanted.
