Resetting "Visited" links to "links" color when new browser opens - Macromedia Dynamic HTML

HELP! This should be simple, but I can't find info: In using CSS for font color for text hyperlinks, I have mine set so that the "links" are a certain color (we'll say blue), but the "visited" color is a second color (let's say gray). In other words, you open a browser window, load the site, and the links are blue UNTIL you click on them, then gray thereafter to indicate they've been visited. All well and good.

    Default Resetting "Visited" links to "links" color when new browser opens

    HELP! This should be simple, but I can't find info:

    In using CSS for font color for text hyperlinks, I have mine set so that the
    "links" are a certain color (we'll say blue), but the "visited" color is a
    second color (let's say gray).

    In other words, you open a browser window, load the site, and the links are
    blue UNTIL you click on them, then gray thereafter to indicate they've been
    visited. All well and good.

    The problem is, I want the COLOR of the "visited" links to reset so that on
    a subsequent visit to that website, the color of the text hyperlinks resets
    to "links" color (blue) instead of remaining gray (the "visited" color).

    I thought this was a quirk of IE, but can't find any settings (advanced or
    otherwise) that speak to a "reset" function. In other words, I don't know
    what it is in the browser's code that "marks" a particular piece of
    hypertext as unvisited (blue) or visited (gray).

    I must be missing something

    THANKS IN ADVANCE FOR ANY HELP!

    John

    I don't think you can do anything about it - once a user has visited a site,
    it stays visited until their history is cleared (either automatically or
    manually). I don't think you have any control over it.
