Hey what are the A:link A:visited A:active A:hover values for the MS IE default blue; blue underline; and purple once visited links.

I need this because I have a page where links are given other properties; So I'm thinking of a #mailto { } class or whatever within the <style> tags to help me create that default instance which I can use with a <div id="mailto">

PLS. REPLY IF ABOVE IS UNCLEAR.
ALL HELP WELCOME.

Cheers.

Default Link properties (Ezy Q. pls. Help)

a {
color:#00f; /* blue */
}
a:visited {
color:#606; /* purple */
}
a:active, a:focus, a:hover {
color:#f00; /* red */
}

That's my guess.
If that's what you're looking for.

Default Link properties (Ezy Q. pls. Help)

First of all thanks for the code. I really got what i need.

Just confirming. I think (on default) when a link is active (hover, float) whatever; it's underlined aye?

Because I've never seen Red associated with a default link in IE.

Pls. clear this up

Thanx for the help

With IE6 under
Tools > Internet Options > Colors...
there is a box you can check for Use Hover Color:, and I believe its default color is red.

And yes, I also believe the default behaviour is to always have the link underlined.
