The Word docs that I'm writing will be read as printed documents and also
online (as Word docs). The cross-references are hyperlinks, so they appear
in a different color and with underline. But in the printed docs, that looks
awful. Is there a standard way of formatting the hyperlinks so they look OK
(i.e., like normal text) in print, but are still obviously hyperlinks when
viewed on screen? I don't think it's enough to just use italics. My editor
suggested using a color that shows up as black when in print (e.g., dark
green). But we often print the docs in color.
Any ideas, friends?
