something like this would work:

		<style type="text/css">
			A.set1, A.set1:link {
				color: red;
			A.set2, A.set2:link {
				color: green;
		<a href="" class="set1">link 1</a>
		<a href="" class="set1">link 2</a>

		<a href="" class="set2">link 3</a>
		<a href="" class="set2">link 4</a>


Assigning a class to the a tag, will allow you to do what you want.

(not OT, but this tip is very helpful.)
<tip type="XSLT, ASP, and document()" author="Eric Vitiello Jr.">
	When using the document() function in XSLT to include XML from an HTTP source, make sure to set the ServerHTTPRequest property (using the setProperty Method) of the XML and XSL DOM Objects to true.  Doing this will allow the XSL file to properly call the external XML file with the document() function.
