Why I use red links

Interesting question. Erm, they're all interesting,
of course, but some more than others ;)

Every page I've ever written has had red links
because I once red a study (pun intended) that
said Netscape had botched things up by specifying
blue as default. The reasoning behind it is that
in nature, the most attention-grabbing colour is red.
I thought this made good sense, so I've used
red ever since, with various shades of dark blue for
visited links. The only exception is when I use colours
a key to make things easier when there's a lot of info.

There ain't much I do without some kind of reason behind it.
