Thanks for your thoughts on the "too much bold" situation re the content links on theHome page. I agree about "too much bold." Originally I had this in a fainter green (which I preferred) but the client wanted them more bold. I wanted them to "blend into the textual content" of the page so to speak because these are internal links already accessible from the left hand side menu and the bottom menu, therefore, no underlining. But an underline on the hover is a good idea. Hopefully, I can go back to my original, less intense coloring idea.

Oh, that we could control the degree of bolding, but we're limited.
