Ok folks, I'm officially torn.
While this is a theoretical question, it's also very practical in
I am getting weary of sites that have 'text-decoration: none' and the
link color is 0.00001% of a shade lighter or darker than the regular text.
On the other hand, I'm not thrilled with the way that underlining looks.
Given the number of visually impaired/color blind/not entirely brilliant
web users out there, I'm inclined to keep the underlining[*] for all
except navigational links where it should be obvious what they are.
I'd like to hear pro/con about this. Right now I'd like to use
text-decoration: none but I haven't seen it particularly well
implemented in many places. Would you add a background color of some sort?
