a) what are your 'normal' link colours?
a:link {
a:hover {
a:active {
a:visited {
a.selected {

b) did you clear the cache?
every time

c) is this:
<a class="nowon" href=# onClick="location.href ='page.htm';">
the same in your document? Without the "" for the href=#
it is a shortened version. the onClick had a few more directives with the
same attitude of the one listed, but nested inside a frameset.

d) what DOCTYPE did you declare, what browser are you using?
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN">

becuase e) is not responded to, to what you've said here, and what I agreed
with my manager is that once you're at that page, there is no need for that
highlighted link to be active any longer so - It now resides as a dead link.

Thanks all for your help,
