JH:: "Maybe that's just a matter of poor design, making it difficult for
any user to navigate, not a disability-related issue."

WL: Of course using one's own style sheet might help solve this dilemma
but I'm not sure varying the way links are indicated is "poor design" so
much as "individual expression" or "look and feel". Think of it as the
same sort of choice as font selection or color choice. The "difficulty
of navigation" will be there for some no matter what you do because
there is no longer any possibility that there will be *one* standard for
indicating that certain stuff is a hyperlink.
