      I'm no css 'expert' by any means, so maybe there are others on this list
      who can answer this a bit more eloquently than I can. But, I'll give it a

      First of all, in the RGB values of colors, when your color value is a set
      of matched pairs (e.g., #336699), you may write them as single values and
      the browser will interpret it the same way. So, instead of #FF9900, you
      can write #F90 and it will work the same way. The savings of time and
      filespace is next-to-nothing, but it's a shorthand habit I've gotten into.

      Valid values for text-decoration are none, underline, overline,
      line-through, blink, and inherit. They're all pretty self-explanatory,
      except maybe "inherit". "inherit" just means that the text-decoration of
      the parent element is applied. I've heard people talk about this
      property not working so well in some browsers.

      style for one kind of anchor (link), I try to define it for the others as
      well. "Transparent" is a color value available in css (unlike html
      methods), and it makes sure that when the background color, for instance,
      of a link is changed to white on a hover that the color is set back to
      "transparent" (letting the background show through) when the hover is

      By the way, the order I had the elements in is important as well. They
      should always be ordered:
