Safari Link Underlining? - Mac Applications & Software

I note that Safari Enhancer can't turn off link underlining in Safari 1.0. Is there a utility that can do so? Sorry, but I'm not interested in starting a lengthy thread on why my life would be better if I liked link underlining. Just the facts, please! TIA! Davoud -- usenet *at* davidillig *dawt* com...

    Default Safari Link Underlining?

    I note that Safari Enhancer can't turn off link underlining in Safari
    1.0. Is there a utility that can do so? Sorry, but I'm not interested

    I had the link underlining turned off as soon as there was a way to do
    so. I just upgraded Safari to 1.0 and it somehow found whatever hidden
    preference Safari Enhancer had toggled; none of the links are
    underlined, but I don't know how that happened (I'm not complaining,
    mind you).

    You don't need an entire third-party program to create one line of CSS
    for you.

    If you would like to disable link underlining in Safari:

    Create a text file. Call it something like user.css and put it
    somewhere appropriate, like ~/Library/Safari. In it, put:

    a { text-decoration: none }

    In Safari, open your Preferences, go to Advanced, and set this file as
    your user stylesheet. Voila, no more link underlines.

    I use mine for some surgical ad blocking.

    You should be able to change the style sheet for the 'a:link',
    'a:visited', 'a:link:active', and 'a:visited:active' styles without
    resorting to an outside program. But I don't know the exact details.

    You can accomplish this by providing a default CSS style sheet to
    Safari's "Advanced" preferences tab. Here's the one I use to
    disable underlining without hovering:
    > /**
    > * Decoration for links to provide for 'hover' underlining.
    > **/
    >
    > :link, :visited {
    > text-decoration: none;
    > }
    >
    > :link:hover, :visited:hover {
    > text-decoration: underline;
    > }
