How do I make it so that my link bar is affected by my external CSS?

I can see by the source code that Front Page 2003 adds the style of [ text-decoration: none ] to link bars that have the style

 that | looks | like | this | right | here

I would like to assign a mouseover color via CSS but the linkbar has somehow overrided me.

How do I affect my linkbars with CSS?

Is this linkbar created by you or FP?  Do you have a theme applied?

It's a custom link bar with a particular theme. I actually figured it out. The text based link bars automatically have no text decoration unless you have your CSS being set by frontpage's themes. You can just write your own CSS file and link it. You have to use Frontpage's themes to affect the "CSS" of frontpage elements. Irritating.

Well you should be able to add the classes to the hyperlinks if needed.  You said you applied a theme - and can change that theme as needed.  This was why I asked those important questions
