I use just use this in the style sheet:

.menu {  color: #FFFFFF}
a.menu {  text-decoration:none}

Anchors in the menu have the class 'menu':

<a class="menu" href="foo">menu item</a>

That way you don't have to bother giving each of anchors in the body 
text their own class.
You can extend this to include hover as well, to give menu items 
rollover effects:

a.menu:hover {  color: #333333}

Hope this helps..
