Specifying the Link Colors within an HTML Web Page

You can specify the link colors within an HTML web page.

The BODY tag follows the HEAD tag within an HTML web page document.

The contents of your web page is displayed between the BODY tags. This includes everything displayed when viewed through a web browser.

You can specify the link colors within an HTML web page by adding the LINK, ALINK, and VLINK attributes to your HTML BODY tag.

However, including these attributes within your HTML BODY tag is only necessary if you would like to display your link colors in any color other than the default.

Please keep in mind, changing the HTML link colors is not recommended, as the default HTML link colors is what your visitors are used to.

Copy and paste the HTML link attributes into the BODY tag of your HTML code.

<body Link="#0000C0" ALINK="#0000FF" VLINK="#FF0000">

LINK - Linked text
ALINK - Active link
VLINK - Visited link

Edit the color codes indicated in red to suit your needs.

Although you can specify the link colors within an HTML web page, it is always best to leave the link colors at their default setting, as this is what your visitors are used to. Changing the colors may confuse them.
