Can anyone tell me the best way to specify link colors for links will appear
with both a white and a black background? i.e the color of the actual link
need to be different for each of these circumstances. I see this often on
sites - where there is a navigation bar with a colored background - but the
links on the rest of the page have a white background.

The links must show up clearly with both style sheet enabled browsers and
browsers that don't use style sheets - and remain inaccessible.

Do I need to use a combination of style sheet specification and FONT tags -
with the font element being used on browsers that can't use the style sheet?
(I know the font element is not part of the current spec)

I appreciate any help with this. I could play around with it to get it to
look right but If someone has already worked it out that would save me from
getting it wrong.
