As we once more lightly trip along that line between CSS and
October, specifically because one site I often visit sets their link
text to be the same color as their regular text, and I refuse to
enable link underlining in my primary browser. I have the favelet
in my personal toolbar as _a_ :
styles to underline ALL 'a' elements, including non-link <a
name="blah">...</a>. It would be possible to write a function that
only underlines 'a' elements with an 'href' attribute, but I was
feeling lazy. It will also leave the underlines until the page is
reloaded. It would probably be possible to write a favelet that
toggled them back and forth with each click, but again-- I'm lazy. I
find the above works well enough for my purposes.
 I prefer the term "favelet" to "bookmarklet," but no reason to
make anything out of that. Just my personal preference.
 I probably adapted it from the table/td-highlight favelet I got
from someone else, though now I can't remember who it was.
 Because I think the underlines are ugly. It's another matter of
 Of course, any other style change(s) could be made to the
elements. I considered boldfacing all links instead of underlining
them but didn't want to risk document reflow problems that might
result. It also wouldn't have helped with making inline images in
links stand out, which underlining should do.
