I should remember how to do this, but can't.

How with the following link html code, can I make the color of the link white without using the <body> tag or a css file.

<a href="weblink">link text</a>

<BODY link="blue" alink="blue" vlink="violet">
alink="color"   For the active link color
vlink="color"   For the visited link color

or

<HEAD>
<STYLE type="text/css">
a.greenlink:link {color: #00a000;}
</STYLE>>
</HEAD>

<A href="somepage.html" class="greenlink">Visit Somepage</A>

I don't think you can change color name of the link without using <body> or css.

Thanks for your response, but you missed this part in my question:

"without using the <body> tag or a css file"

I want it all contained within the <a href= statement.

This is an<b onmouseout="this.style.color = 'black';" onmouseover="this.style.color = 'red';" align="justify"> example </b>of changing the color of text using a MouseOver.

Oh, you can use it. and use onclick even.

I guess the "link" meant the <a> element, not the ":link" pseudo-class.
Note that if you want to override inline styles, you can use "!important"
For example, this should make your white "link" red on hover:

a:hover {
  color: red !important;
}
