**I like the all blue color scheme too. I don't like most visited link 
colors because they tend to constrast rather than match the page color 
scheme. I think making *a:link* and *a:visited* the same color seems 
like a good compromize. I don't like underlines either but the extra 
visual cue it would give the light _*hover color*_ would make the hover 
link stand out more. When your not hovering there would be no underline.
