This code makes all my links green.  I only want the third link to be green.
<p id="myp"> 
   <a href="#i1">Link 1</a> 
   <a href="#i2">Link 2</a> 
   <a href="#i3">Link 3</a> 
   <a href="#i4">Link 4</a> 
  </p>

<script type="text/javascript">
  $("#myp a").css("color", "#11ff11");
</script>

<p id="myp">
   <a href="#i1" class=l1>Link 1</a>
   <a href="#i2" class=l1>Link 2</a>
   <a href="#i3" class=l2>Link 3</a>
   <a href="#i4" class=l1>Link 4</a>
  </p>

<script type="text/javascript">
  $("#myp l1").css("color", "#11ff11");
</script>

I don't have my script up and running but form off the top of my head, this should work.  Make sure to declare the classes in the .css file

This will make only your third link green.
<p id="myp"> 
   <a href="#i1">Link 1</a> 
   <a href="#i2">Link 2</a> 
   <a href="#i3">Link 3</a> 
   <a href="#i4">Link 4</a> 
  </p>

<script type="text/javascript">
  $("#i3").css("color", "#11ff11");
</script>

Use : http://api.jquery.com/eq-selector/

So : $("#myp a:eq(2)").css("color", "#11ff11");

test page :


<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />
<title>Untitled Document</title>
<script language="javascript" src="http://code.jquery.com/jquery-1.4.2.min.js"></script>
</head>
<body>
<p id="myp"> 
   <a href="#i1">Link 1</a> 
   <a href="#i2">Link 2</a> 
   <a href="#i3">Link 3</a> 
   <a href="#i4">Link 4</a> 
  </p>
<script type="text/javascript">
  $("#myp a:eq(2)").css("color", "#11ff11");
</script>
</body>
</html>
