Frontpage Underline in Firefox


A

arthurs01

My website is www.saraharthur.com. When I use Firefox to view it, several
links are underlined while other links are not. I don't want links
underlined. I have them colored with a small icon. How do I get the
underlining to disappear? I have tried the basics and these work when
viewing in IE, but not FF. Any suggestions? I'm not an ace at code but I
can work a little with it if need be.
Thanks,
Tom

Style the link with

<style>

a link:
{
text-decoration: none;
}

Someone might correct me on the CSS syntax, but essentially that's what you
need to do.

You can also do this in the page properties (or hyperlink properties), by
turning text decoration off through the GUI, rather than messing with the
code, it essentially does the same thing as above, it inserts
"text-decoration:none" as an inline style in your links.

I tried this and it made everything disappear on the page. My page may be
quite jury-rigged! Any thoughts? Thanks for trying to fix this with me.
peace,

I tried the code and nothing seems to have changed on the page. Any further
suggestions? Maybe your code is off a little bit as you suggested?

I'm also not seeing the setting for the link style in the page properties or
in the link properties. In the page properties I have set the color for
links, but don't see anything about underlining. Can you direct me more
specifically? BTW, I'm using FP 2003. And also, I am able to turn the
underlining off in IE but it still shows up in FF.
Peace,
Tom

Steve's code snippet will remove all underlines from all text hyperlinks
in all browsers (from Netscape 4 and IE4 and later, including FireFox).
If the underlines are still present then there is something else adding
the underlines back, or the code has not been placed correctly.
A link to a faulty page will help solve the problem.

The CSS styles probably will not appear in Page properties.

Ronx,
Thanks for the help. Several pages are causing me problems. The home page
www.saraharthur.com shows some of these problems in Fire Fox. The first link
in the first paragraph is underlined. Then down below the paragraphs teh
frist two links and the last two links are underlined while the middle link
is not. There are several other links underlined on this page while other
links are not.

Thanks,
Tom

Change

<style>
a link:
{
text-decoration: none;
}
</style>

To

<style type="text/css">
a {
text-decoration: none;
}
</style>


The clean up the links in code view. For example, the link for books:

<b>
<font color="#595485" face="Arial" size="1">
<a href="writing/index.htm"><span style="text-decoration: none">
<font color="#62707D">►</font></span></a></font></b><font
face="Arial" size="2"><a href="writing/index.htm"><span
style="text-decoration: none; font-weight: 700"><font
color="#62707D">books</font></span></a>


Should be

<b><a href="writing/index.htm"><font face="Arial" color="#62707D"
size="1">►<font size="2">books</font></font></a></b>

Found an easy fix if you don't like writing code - In FrontPage- Design Mode- right click on link - choose hyperlink properties/ then choose style / choose format drop down / font / check no text decoration - apply, ok etc. Cleared the underlines in Firefox. Doing that in Cell or Table properties will NOT work and not needed.
