    In your stylesheet, add something like:

    a:href { text-decoration:none; }

    That'll remove underlining, etc. But you need to make sure users will still
    be able to see that it's a link. Use bold text, a different, contrasting
    color (don't forget colorblind users!), or something! :)

    I think it has to be like this:

    a:link { text-decoration:none; }

    Yeah, I've been doing the a:href thing all night long and I don't know why.
    Blegh. Tired. :/

    Or:

    a[href] { text-decoration:none; }

    (although my version won't work in IE... grumble, grumble...)

    It does work. Don't you remember visiting the page?

    In your case, since you've been there, you need a:visited as well.

    There's also a:hover and a:active, btw.

    It does. Exlanations:

    1). Your links are not links (for instance, no value for HREF is
    specified) -- they can still be anchors though.
    2). Your links are all visited and hence in visited state that you
    specified elsewhere.
    3). Something else in your CSS is overriding it. Also, keep a check on
    the the natural order of pseudo-selectors for anchors: a, a:link,
    a:visited, a:focus, a:hover, a:focus.

    If you give a URL I will be happy to investigate.
