How to edit the appearance of the adsense-referral text link

I use adsense referrals (links to google products and services). For example, here is the code of the text link "Get photo software from Google":

<script type="text/javascript"><!--
google_ad_client = "pub-1234567890";
google_ad_output = "textlink";
google_ad_format = "ref_text";
google_cpa_choice = "CAAyI_AEaCL_IbiZuSueDKm7oMB";
google_ad_channel = "";
//--></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/show_ads.js">
</script>

I have css-class "smalltextbottom".


.smalltextbottom {font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size:11px; font-weight:normal; color: #FFFFFF;}

How to change the default format of the text link in such a way that it is written using the properties of the my css-class? To be exact I want the text link "Get photo software from Google" to be written with these properties {font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size:11px; font-weight:normal; color: #FFFFFF;}. How to realize it? Thank you!

you could wrap the whole script in a div with your class name, then target the <a>, anchors inside that div (the one the script generates)

e.g.

<div class="smalltextbottom">

<script type="text/javascript"><!--
google_ad_client = "pub-1234567890";
google_ad_output = "textlink";
google_ad_format = "ref_text";
google_cpa_choice = "CAAyI_AEaCL_IbiZuSueDKm7oMB";
google_ad_channel = "";
//--></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/show_ads.js">
</script>

</div>



CSS:

.smalltextbottom a {
font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
font-size:11px;
font-weight:normal;
color: #F00;
}

.smalltextbottom a:hover {
color: #00f;
}

Note:
However I'm not sure if this is allowed or if it falls under the "Code Modification" adsense rule, perhaps some of the more knowledgable adsense'rs can clarify that.

Ask permission from adsense before even trying to modify the looks. AFAIK it's outlawed in the ToS.
