Good day,

Regarding link pseudo-classes (<http://www.w3.org/TR/2005/WD-css3- 
selectors-20051215/#link>)

| This is why the recommended order in CSS1 goes like this:
|    a:link
|    a:visited
|    a:hover
|    a:active
|
|The first two can be in either order, actually, because a link can't  
be both visited and unvisited at the same time. |(:link means  
"unvisited"; and no, I don't know why they didn't call it that.)

(:link means "unvisited"; and no, I don't know why they didn't call  
it that.)

I think Eric Meyer has a point here. Changing it would make it easier  
to understand.

What do you think of it?
