You could do it with javascript:

<script type="text/javascript">
function redirect(a)
{
window.location = a;
}
</script>

<div><p style="color:blue" onclick="redirect('http://www.google.co.uk');">test code</p></div>

Open in new window

Hi,
Have you tried adding the following to your stylesheet:
a{
outline:none; /*FF1.5+ IE7+*/
-moz-outline:none /* FF<=1.5*/
}
If you only wish to target arrow links add a class e.g
a.arrorws/*CSS*/
<a href="" class="arrows"> <!-- html -->
Regards.
