Chapter 8. Creating Links > Affecting the Appearance of Links

8.4. Affecting the Appearance of Links

As we all by now know, linked text is blue and underlined by default and graphics are identified by blue borders (unless you turn them off). But it doesn't have to be that way! Changing the color of links is easy with HTML, so you can make your links more coordinated with your chosen site palette. Style sheets offer even more control over the appearance of links.

You should exercise some caution in changing link appearance. The blue text and underlines have become a strong visual clue for "click here," so altering this formula may confuse your users. Use your knowledge of the savvy of your target audience to guide your design decisions.
