I have seen this (bug?) on my secretary's PC and just now it was reported 
to me from another person using IE on a PC.
The active link does not "pop back", making the link unreadable, or 
equivalent to the behaviour of a vlink, even where the vlink is specified 
as yet another color. (For example, background of the page is white and 
alink is white... and stays that way.)

Is there something in the way IE on the PC sees the alink code that would 
make this happen? Has anyone seen this before?

Doesn't matter, by the way, whether you use the old fashioned tag in the 
body string or new style in the header, same effect happens. The only 
explanation is that they might not be using page-specified link colors?
