One thing is to make sure you have them in correct order (otherwise the
won't work or will exhibit 'strange' behavior).

Eric Meyer has a great abbreviation : 'LVHA' (which I've taken to calling
'luvya' to remember it by).

'LVHA' = Link  then Visited then Hover then Active - is the order they
should be read in your CSS.

Hope that helps,
