Hyperlink color changes


Users is trying to change a color of a certain character style being styled as a link in the CSS, for example:

{ color: Green } 

The issue is that the a links get defined before the selector, so that it will adopt whatever color you have set for the a tag.


The solution is to use inheritance to make certain elements for the link (a tag) adopt the character style (span tag) in what as known as inheritance, for example:

span.Glossary > a
color: green;

This makes the link element that is selected as class "Glossary" inherit the span tag that is the color green. For more information on inheritance, please refer to this link
