Problem with Link Text Color in IE7
Link text, by default, is supposed to render in blue. Yet in the
following example the text renders distinctly magenta-ish in IE7, but
blue in Firefox 3. Kudos to anyone who can explain this anomaly to me.
Here's the HTML to reproduce the issue:

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" "http://
www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd">

<html lang="en">

<head>
<title>Color Problem</title>
<meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html;
charset=iso-8859-1">
</head>

<body bgcolor="gray">
<p>This should be black on gray (and is).</p>
<a href="whatever.htm">This link should be blue on gray( and is in
Firefox but not IE)</a>
</body>
</html>
