changing colour of word with mouse


I used a word to make a link with a page. This word is underlined, ok. Now when I run the page I would a colour change (for the word) when the mouse is on the word. How can I do that, please?

This is how I set up my hyperlinks to change from blue to red when the mouse passes over them. Note that the words appear as bold and I chose not to underline them.
