Some of your pages have text that serves as links to other pages.
These linking words are usually a different color from the rest of the text.
Actually, these words have two colors:
the color that they are before you click on them
the color that they are after they have been clicked.
Sometimes the default colors do not show up well on your pages.
This is how you can change those colors.
