Hi

Basically, you do this:

<html>
<head>
<style type="text/css">
a:link {color:blue;}
a:hover {color:red;}   /*This is when mouse is over link*/
</style>
</head>
<body>
<a href="http://www.google.com/">Google</a>
</body>
</html>

Regards,
Zyloch

Zyloch,
   Ok, that works almost perfectly. Problem is how to make it stay blue as the link color after it has been clicked....
