WebAim Links- Color and Hover Effects


Date: Dec 12, 2007 8:50AM

I have gone back and forth with myself in trying to determine the best
way to display links on a Web page. When I say the best way, I mean one
that is universally accessible. I have become very curious as to the way
the WebAim presents its links.

What is the advantage of presenting links the way that WebAim does. They
have regular link with hover effects that change the background to a
soft yellow and the link text to maroon. Does anyone know why that is?
