if you have an css compatible browser... then place this tag in the special a href...
where 2587b2 represents any rgb value... (just a color I like)

You can define the linkcolor using <FONT COLOR="#EEFFDD">. The funny thing is that that only works in a table cell.

This solution works for all 3+ browsers. The stylesheet solution mentioned by Grdv, works only in 4+ browsers.

At least in Netscape 4 and IE 4, you can put the font tags INSIDE the href and the font will apply.  Like this:
this is <a href="test"><font color="Lime">a link</font></a>
It doesn't matter whether or not it's in a table or anything.  This doesn't work in netscape 3 though (and probably not IE 3 either).
