I'm using FrameMaker 11 and RoboHelp 10 in Technical Communication Suite 4. My RoboHelp project is linked to my FrameMaker book.

I'm using a CSS with my RoboHelp project. When users click on hyperlinks in WebHelp, I want unvisited (unclicked) links to be one color (green) and visited (clicked) links to be another color (purple). I have the following in my CSS:

a:link {color:#006600;} /* unvisited link */
a:visited {color:#4C00BC;} /* visited link */

Most of the visited links in RoboHelp do turn to purple, but not all. Some visited links are partially purple (the underline for the link turns to purple), but the text stays green.

Any ideas why this happens? Or how to fix it? Thanks in advance for any ideas.
