Tony, couldn't the links be something other than a bolded gray. My old eyes have to strain to find them all too often. I think this is both a usability and an accessibility issue.

When I remember to, another consequence of old age, I color them blue and add an underscore.

cheers,

gary

Not sure if its just my phone

Not sure if its just my phone screen, but links show up in a sort of pale turquoise color for me?

I understand why they don't have an underline (it does look weird and out of place on some sites) but something to make them stand out would help.

Errm...I think you'll find it's supposed to be turquoise=unvisited and grey, underlined=visited.

However I sympathise with Gary because I have found it to turn grey for some reason when I'm posting the link. Black would at least stand out from the grey text.
