My question is as follows:
I would like to know how to change the VLINK color of only one, out of a series of, hyperlinks.  The tricky part, at least i think, is that i would still like to change only the hyperlink clicked, reguardless if the links goto the same page.
EX:  Fun | Games | Sports
each one of those hyperlink to a bookmark on the same page.  Let's say the user clicks "Fun".  I would only like that link to change colors (VLINK) even though the others are on the same page.  Please help.
-Treason-
P.S - please forgive any spelling/grammer mistakes that i might have.

You could use CSS.  It would work in IE 4.x and NS 4.x only.
<HEAD>
<STYLE>
fun  {
     visited: red;
     }
notsofun {
         visited:blue;
         }
<STLYE>
</HEAD>

<A HREF="yourfile.htm#fun" CLASS="fun">Fun</A>
<A HREF="yourfile.htm#notsofun" CLASS="NotSoFun">Not So Fun</A>

this will make the Fun link turn red after a click and make Not So Fun turn blue after it is clicked

Okay, i get what your saying, but it doesn't seem to be working.  Please tell me if I am doing something wrong (the example is further down).
------------------

<html>
<head>
<title>Activities</title>
<meta name="GENERATOR" content="Microsoft FrontPage 3.0">
<style type="text/css">
<!--
a { text-decoration: none }
a:hover { color: "#FF0000" }

L1 {
visited: red;
}
-->
</style>
</head>

<body BGCOLOR="#FFFFFF" TEXT="#000000" LINK="#0000FF">
<a href="activities2.htm#Age" CLASS="L1">For group age information please click here</a>
------------------
The link does not change to red, or do anything other than the default VLINK.
