Styling the a Element

Styling the <a> Element

The final step in this lesson involves setting the link colors. You will work on four pseudo-classes.

The a:link pseudo-class can be set to color: #175B7D, and the a:visited pseudo-class can be set to color: #600.

The a:hover and a:active pseudo-classes also can be set with color: #fff; and background: #175B7D as shown in Listing 19.12. The results can be seen in Figure 19.11.
