 a:visited.white_active{color:#fff;}
 a:visited.blue_active {color:blue;}

<a href="#" class="white_active">Some Link</a>
<a href="#" class="blue_active">Some Link</a>

Open in new window


Or
.area_1 a:visited {color:blue;}
.area_2 a:visited {color:green;}
.header a:visited{color:#fff;}

<div class="header"><a href="#">Some Link</a></div>
<div class="area_1"><a href="#">Some Link</a></div>
<div class="area_2"><a href="#">Some Link</a></div>
<!-- below is browser default -->
<a href="#">Some Link</a>
