   You're actually trying to change the wrong item (or rather not enough
   items). What you want to change (to get the border) is the IMAGES
   inside the links. Like this:
   	a:link img { border: none }

I knew about the border around images, but this border only appears because
the image is a link - like text-decoration produces an underline when the
text is a link. This whole thing is very counter-intuitive.

And I still need to know why specifying my link colors doesn't also specify
them for the image borders which are links.
