Changing Link Color with Mouseovers

Changing Link Color with Mouseovers

Question:

How can I change the color of a link when the mouse is over the link? And how can I remove the line that underlines the links? I am using Internet Explorer 4+ and Netscape 4+.

Answer:

Actually, this may be done with CSS, not JavaScript, but I can give you the answer anyway. However, be forewarned that it doesn’t work in Netscape versions prior to version 6.

Add the following code inside your tag:

“text-decoration:none” says to not display underlines on anchor tags, while “text-decoration: underline” says to display the underline when the user hovers over the link. In the same way, the text will change to red, because of the “color:red” style.
