(This post is from my old, old, super old site. My views have changed over the years, hopefully my writing has improved, and there is now more than a handful of folks reading my site. Enjoy.)

Well, it looks like the 10.3.6 update broke something in Safari. Links aren't underlined a blue by default anymore (at least for myself and Joe anyway).

Good thing I just finished reading "Web Standards Solutions: The Markup and Style Handbook". So now I can tell you that you can use the following css to fix thing up:

<style type="text/css" title="text/css"> <!-- body a { text-decoration: underline; color: blue; } --></style>

I wonder how that bug got by.

I highly recommend the book by the way, I learned all kinds of nifty tricks and things about html/css that I don't think I would have found out any other way.

Update: Well, it looks like it was a problem with having had Safari 1.3 dev preview installed. I guess if you had that and then updated to 10.3.6, safari broke. I then reinstalled 1.2 and then that's when things started going south with the colors. Thanks to the folks in the comments for chiming in with this.
