Remember that it is bad design to rely on color alone to indicate
something to the user. If you simply rely on color, you'll lose users
who are colorblind, or users who print on a black and white printer,

If you are going to indicate a "link" with a color, you need to add
some other visual cue in addition so that all of your users will be
able to see what you are pointing out.

Yep. The little pointy finger plus the bookmarks are familiar navigation
devices. The blue cross references keep them from getting lost in the text
and are familiar hyperlink indicators.
