The new RGB values are Hex 00 66 CC or Dec 0 102 204. The old were Hex 00 00 FF, Dec 0 0 255. The link colours can be changed in IE by the user under Options, Appearence, Colors. However, the default is: "Use Windows colors". If that is unchecked the old blue is offered as the first alternative for unvisited links, but I am sure that very few of my visitors are going to override IE/Window's default or CSS governed colours.
This link colour is correct in XP + IE 7 and in Vista + FF. If everybody else is seeing the same I guess I have no choice but recode all my pages where link colours are undefined. Visited links are still purple.
Here on WebmasterWorld there is no difference between unvisited and visited links anymore; not even a dotted border. When I return from a thread to the forum page it is hard to find the last read subject, in order to read the next. The on-screen Arial is not the same cut as before. It looks somehow modernised, and it is not bad. Maybe the new font look is due to my new monitor resolution.
