3.The *bread crumb* navigation link at the top of the thread is *white* until you mouse over it, and then it changes to the new color.

This I could probably fix .. by mucking around with the CSS for a while, after I find out which styles control what. The new blue-green color is #669999 (I think).

4.The *moderator* list at the top of the thread has the new color until you mouse over--then the name turns *white* with a *white underline*--other links stay the blue/green color and only a *white underline* occurs.

5.*Back to Top*changes to all *white* when moused over.

These are not necessarily bad. Generally you want some way for a visitor to know that a link is available/present, and you want some type of roll-over effect so they have an indication they are mousing-over a link. Beyond that, nobody agrees exactly how to style links. Altho consistancy should be maintained (which we don't).

Personally, I prefer the dotted-underline links (using the "bottom-border" attribute) , so visitors know it's a link (like I do on thre home page), and I like the link to get slightly brighter upon mouse-over (simple but effective) .. but that's just me.

Not really asking that you change any of this--just pointing out the there appears to be multiple link entries that are different in character and behavior!!!

Consistent we are not.

Just logged in from work and saw the new blue links.  Took me a second to adjust, but I like it better than the orange.

Cool. The orange *did* kinda "jump out" at you.

I wonder how it looks on a CRT.

Not much feedback from me but I find it difficult to read in a well (sun) lit room. (I'm too lazy to make any changes ...)

For me, *any* monitor in a well sunlit room suks. That's why I live in a cave. I pull the shades down most of the way. Every once in  while I come out .. looking like a mole. =)
