Problem with CSS styles

Hello all,

I've set the links for the entire page to white as follows:
a:link {
      color: #FFFFFF;
      text-decoration: none;
}
a:visited {
      text-decoration: none;
      color: #FFFFFF;
}
a:hover {
      text-decoration: none;
      color: #FFFFFF;
}
a:active {
      text-decoration: none;
      color: #FFFFFF;
}

But there are two specific links I need to be black, on this style:

.style35 {color: #838484; font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 12px; font-weight: bold;
}

How do I make style35 to have black links?

Thanks!

I'm assuming that "style35" is the class name of a <p> tag and the link you want to be black is within that <p> tag. Is this correct?

If so, you would use the descendant selector as such:

.style35 a {color: #000;}

Open in new window


This simply says that all <a> tags that are descendants of an element with a class name of "style35" should be black.
