Hello

Please look at this page:

http://nobootleg.com/

And scroll down to the bottom -- you'll see a link "Terms of  Use".

I have various styles and divs containing the above text.

How do I change the a:link a:hover etc so that the font color is always white and always underlined.

Thanks!

You can add this in your css file :

a:link {
      color: white;
      }
a:visited {
      color: white;
      }
a:hover {
      color: white;
      }
a:active {
      color: white;
      }

i think that

a {
 color: white;
 text-decoration: underline;
}

is enough

Sorry I should have been clearer.  I only want the links that are enclosed in either the following divs to be white etc.  (In other words I don't wan it to affect other links on the site.)

div.moduletable_termsofuseNEW

and/or

div#TermzNew

Both of the above wrap around the text Terms of Use.

(Not sure of the advantage of styling a link within a div# or a div. -- so I put them both in!)

Thanks.  That worked.

I assume it's best (or it's the only way) to control it via a CLASS (.) rather than and id (#)???

in this case it does not matter...
choosing between class and id is up to you, and also depends on your layout
