Hour 3. Creating a Web Page > Setting the link, alink, and vlink Colors

Setting the link, alink, and vlink Colors

You might have noticed during a Web-surfing session that hyperlinks are usually in color, and that sometimes the link changes color as you click it and changes color again after you have visited the page to which the link led you. What you witnessed are the link, alink, and vlink colors. The link color is the color a link will appear before it has been clicked. The alink (active link) color appears while the mouse is clicking the link. The vlink (visited link) is the color of the link after the user has already visited it.

By default, when no color is specified, most Web browsers will display links as blue, alinks as red, and vlinks as magenta. Many Web designers nowadays, however, specify these colors to compliment the color scheme used throughout the rest of the site.
