keeping black text for hyperlinks?

  turkeylurkey 10:26 15 Mar 2003


i'm trying to design a low graphics website. instead of using buttons, i have opted to use a websafe colour as a background for the cells which make up the menu(with the rest of the page white), adding text for "buttons". I'm sure I have seen this done on other sites but the problem is that I want plain black text and when I add the hyperlinks the text changes to the default blue-underlined.

Is there a way that I can have plain black text without either making buttons or changing the hyperlink properties in page properties? I'm using FPXpress.

thanks in advance

In the Body tag put in

link=#000000 vLink=#000000 aLink=#000000

to look like

<Body link=#000000 vLink=#000000 aLink=#000000>

Highlight the link you want to be black. Right click, select style / font button from the dialog box!!!

Sorry, directly after you highlight the text & right click, first select the hyperlink properties option? sorry my mistake

click here

I am assuming Frontpage Express is similar to Frontpage. Clicking the above link will take you to a picture.

the example in this picture is the text MAIL ME.

Highlight this text and press the 5th button from the right, (globe & chain). This opens the Create Hyperlink, which is greyed out in the back ground, the bottom right hand button is called STYLE, press this button.

The MODIFY STYLE dialog box opens, press the bottom left button called FORMAT, select font from here, then enter the correct details including the colour of your choice.

hope this helps.

it doesn't seem to be the same as frontpage. Xpress definitely doesn't have that dialog box.

thankyou anyway tbh72

Can you explore the help files within FPE. My example shows you what to look for, hopefully I have provided enough information for you to find the answer within the software helpfiles.
