Join Laura Franz for an in-depth discussion in this video Describing the link states in CSS, part of Typography for Web Designers.
In this lesson, we're going to make the links in our traditional bibliography…look the way we want them to.…You need the files biblio_serif_ linkstates.html and biblio_serif_linkstates.css…from the Exercise folder.…You also need the fonts folder with the web font files for Chopin Script.…Drag a copy of the fonts folder into your Exercise folder, so Chopin Script will…continue to work correctly.…View the HTML in your text editor.…
I want to show you that I have added the inline links in the text since our last lesson.…You can see that here.…I have also added some anchor links back to the top of the page.…Here is the new anchor at the top of the page.…I also moved one of the anchors from the previous lesson.…I had originally had to put the choosing anchor above the start of the div, but…I decided that it was a little bit too high.…We could still see the bottom of the h1 when we followed that link.…
So I've moved it down and now it sits just above the h2, like the rest of the anchors do.…Now let's open this file up in our browser and we can see what we are working with.…
