How to change font and color for visited linked cell

I am having problems to locate a solution that describes how to set styles for a linked cell (anchor pseudo classes).

We are using lots of tables with linked cells (URL links). The current default behavior is blue and underlined. I would like to have the usual linke behavior that an already visited link is in a different color (standard red).

Usually this is set with anchor pseudo classes:
a:link {color: #FF0000}     /* unvisited link */
a:visited {color: #00FF00}  /* visited link */
a:hover {color: #FF00FF}   /* mouse over link */
a:active {color: #0000FF}   /* selected link */


How do I set this in ActiveWidgets?

If the above code was copied from your page I see why it is not working. Replace the 'o' characters with '0' and ( replace o with zero) it should work as long as you are not creating specific anchor tags for a given cell.

a:link {color: #FF0000}     /* unvisited link */ 
a:visited {color: #00FF00}  /* visited link */ 
a:hover {color: #FF00FF}   /* mouse over link */ 
a:active {color: #0000FF}   /* selected link */

Interesting... the font that is used above shows a zero as a lower case O. My aplogoies to Andreas, it was not your mistake it is a problem with the display. So check to see if there are any other anchor settings in all of the CSS files for 2.0 to see if something is getting overwritten. Because if it is not getting overwritten your CSS should work. Try adding !important after each one to see if it helps.

a:link {color: #FF0000 !important}     /* unvisited link */ 
a:visited {color: #00FF00 !important}  /* visited link */ 
a:hover {color: #FF00FF !important}   /* mouse over link */ 
a:active {color: #0000FF !important}   /* selected link */

Thanks for the fast reply. As a matter of fact it works indeed.

I just did not realize that another, later included css file overwrites the settings.

Sorry for the noise.

Glad it's working. If you missed the CSS, so will someone else and your post might help the next person. Thanks for posting your findings.

Body or head, inside <style> block :-)
