Taking away the underline in text links - Macromedia Dreamweaver

This is a very beginner question (but I guess it's understandable, seeing as how I just started with Dreamweaver tonight) but when I designate text as a link, it automatically underlines the text. I don't want it underlined. How do I take it away??...

    You have to redefine the A HTML tag as CSS and set decoration to none

    You need to use CSS ="Cascading Style Sheets" which is the way
    you*should* format all text.
    For links, look at [url]www.thepattysite.com[/url].

    When you create the style for the links make sure you do it in the following
    order or the formatting won't work:

    a:link
    a:visited
    a:hover
    a:active

    I learned that the hard way. Hope that helps!
