I deliberately don't have the ability to change links (<A> tags) in this, as I believe that you should avoid messing with links as much as possible. They are a crucial navigation tool, and the blue/red scheme should be maintained, if at all possible. The one change I make is that I tend to make "visited" links a darker blue.
