First declare the stylesheet like this:

<style type="text/css">
/* Defining a class of anchor called Special
   Can be any other name as well */
a.Special {
	color: #CCCCCC;
	text-decoration: none;

/* How a.Special should behave on MouseOver */
a.Special:hover {
	color: BLUE;
	text-decoration: none;

/* Other options are visited and active */
a.Special:visited {

a.Special:active {

Then, use your hyperlink like this:
	<a class="Special" href="..." >My Link</a>

All links used with class="Special" will show the behavior.

Code snippet has been tested in IE/Opera.
