without checking my facts, I *think* that <body> tags may override external
style sheets.. you may have to put the styles inline.  Do you know if your
stylesheet is linked properly?  (does anything else in the style sheet

Hi all,

In a site I am working on, the <body> tag makes the regular links #CCCC99
(darkish beige), but I need the default link color in CSS reading browsers
to be
#333366 (dark blue). However, they are still showing up beige--I have in my

A {
	color : #333366;
	text-decoration : none;

	color : #333366;
	text-decoration : underline;

	color : #333366;
	text-decoration : none;

	color : #333366;
	text-decoration : none;

Shouldn't this override the <body> tag links? I can't make the body tag give
blue links, because if it's the default link color, the navigation links
not be visible in a blue side column on older browsers.
