I know its easy and I have done it before but for the life of me I can't remeber how to change individual link colors throughout a page.  I want half blue and half green.  So far, color="# and link="# have not worked.  Thank you.

Her's how:
<A HREF="page.htm" STYLE="color: blue">Blue link</A>
<A HREF="page.htm" STYLE="color: green">Green link</A>

To get half of the link blue and the other half green, use this:
<BODY ... LINK="00FF00" ALINK="00FF00" VLINK="00FF00">
<A HREF="page.htm" STYLE="color: blue">Blue link</A>
< HREF="page.htm">Green link</A>

(00FF00 is hex code for green)

the proposed answer works with stylesheets and is not supported with all browsers.

The crzay thing is that you can change link colors using the <font color="#...."> tag, but it works only within table cells.

<a href="  "><font color="#..">a colored link</font></a>

Er, yes, can't be done except with CSS -- never heard of it being possible within tables -- sounds like a bug -- just out of interest, which browser have you achieved this in?

I'm sorry, my friend just told me about this.  How do I assign points to an individual?

If you accept the answer, the points will go to the one who has given the "proposed answer", there can be only one "proposed answer". You can reject that answer, and then someone else can give a new "proposed answer".

Sometimes when a proposed answer is already given, another answer is posted as a comment. If the comment is the right answer, you shoulod reject the proposed answer, and ask the one who has given the comment, to repost, but now as an answer.

hmmm, hope you still can follow it. I think i formulate it a bit complicated, but it is not.
