1. Stick the css stuff in a tag:

<a href="somewhere.html" style="color:grey;
text-decoration:none">Your different link</a>

2. Make a class in the main style sheet:

<style type="text/css">
a.yourclass { color: blue; text-decoration: none; }
a.yourclass:hover { color: grey; text-decoration: none
; }

Then use:

<a href="somewhere.html" class="yourclass">Your
different link</a>

Use 2 if you need to have different styles for each of
the pseudo-classes (the hover, link, active, visited
definitions) and have more than one link to change.
Basically, use 2.
