It was red for me, and then "the ugly purple color" once I had 
clicked the link.  This is normal, being the "Visted" state.  See 
below for all 4 states.  Just add the "Visited" state to your cess.

a:link {color:#FF0000;}      /* unvisited link */
a:visited {color:#00FF00;}  /* visited link */
a:hover {color:#FF00FF;}  /* mouse over link */
a:active {color:#0000FF;}  /* selected link */



>Okay gurus, tell me why this doesn't make the link red; it changes 
>on the hover, but not when you load the page, which is here:
>I'm trying to figure out why, even though my CSS specifies a link 
>color on this site's links, they keep taking on the ugly default 
>purplish color...
>Here's my HTML in the test page:
><style type="text/css">
>a:link {
>	color: #FF0000;
>a:hover {
>	color: #05B6FF;
><a href="index.htm">this is a test link.</a>
>So why doesn't this link show in RED instead of purple?
