The link pseudo class selectors validate with color and no background 
specified. That would have given me the answer to my question. All my 
style sheets validate.

Not sure how you're getting that, since I can also submit an element or 
class with color specified, and no background color, with warnings set 
to "All" in w3.org's css validatior, and all comes out clean.
