Link with stylesheet will not stay blue

Hi,

I use this style sheet with:

a.bluelink:link {font-family: arial; font-size: 12px; color: 0000FF; font-weight: bold; text-decoration: none}
a.bluelink:visited {font-family: arial; font-size: 12px; color: 0000FF; font-weight: bold; text-decoration: none}
a.bluelink:active {font-family: arial; font-size: 12px; color: 0000FF; font-weight: bold; text-decoration: none}
a.bluelink:hover {font-family: arial; font-size: 12px; color: 0000FF; font-weight: bold; text-decoration: underline}

After someone visited the link the volor is not 0000FF ant more.

How to set this color on 0000FF???

Thanks,
HPvH

if all of your links stay the same color regardless of visted/hover/active then why not do

a.bluelink {font-family: arial; font-size: 12px; color: 0000FF; font-weight: bold; text-decoration: none}

Your style sheet is valid. If you are experiencing a problem with the colour of your links, then you should check that you are assigning the bluelink class to your links.
For example:

<a class="bluelink" href="http://www.google.com">Google</a>

What? "0000FF" is not a valid color. "#0000FF" is a valid color.
