All I want to do is have the link color in the navigation bar be different than it is for the rest of the page.

I am probably missing something obvious, but I can't figure it out.

Can certainly do it through CSS by making a seperate class for the type of links. On our internal site we have a couple of different types of links so we alter font size and color to indicate them.

<a href=""><font face="arial" color="123456">link</font></a>

Beware, specifying the color in the font tag doesn't work reliably on ALL browsers (sometimes the <body> tag or browser default link colors override your font tag specifications).... especially on Mac browsers.

I looked for different HTML and CSS based methods for specifying more than one different link color on one page during my last site re-design... I couldn't find anything that worked reliably enough cross-platform/cross-browser to actually use.

I actually solved the problem a different way: I changed the color combination so the links could be the same color on the whole page.

Its very simple to use crossbowser CSS for diff coloured links.

Just create normal a:link styles then create something like a.diff:link
then when you want to use the different link just do

a href="whatever.html class="diff"

Ta-Da!

The above has been tested in NN6, NN4.7. Opera and IE on both PC and Mac.
