probably a basic question, but in my CSS i have this:

a:link            { color: navy; }
      a:visited       { color: navy; }
      a:hover            { color: whitesmoke; background-color: #474B39;}
      a:active       { color: #FFFFFF;  }
      
which works great to set the default on my page.  But there is one div layer in my document that I want my hyperlinks to be a different color than the default.  My CSS for that section reads:

.recuadro{
      background-image:url(images/back_recuadro.jpg);
      background-position:top;
      background-repeat:repeat-x;
      min-height:50px;      
      width:100%;

}

what do I need to add to make hyperlinks in that area a different color than the default?   My page is xhtml 1.1 strict.   TY!

just create new styles as follows:

.recuadro a:link{}
.recuadro a:visisted{}

etc.

that will apply to links inside any div with the recuadro class

You can also write it like this:

.recuadro a, .recuadro a:link, .recuadro a:visited, .recuadro a:active{
color: #555555;
}
