Linda, I tend to agree here. Whilst I like people stepping away from
the norm to create something new and interesting, sometimes it is
important to remember what people are used to.

Purple is the de-facto colour for a visited link.

Yes it would be nice to keep your letterhead colours from a corporate
identity point of view, you may also lose some "clicks" through the
confusion of
" Oh, purple, I've been there already.
Hmm wasn't much to see on this site, Oh Well. NEXT! "

I would change the link colour,
but then it is you're sight, er I mean, your site.

Cheers

Woz
