Join Laura Franz for an in-depth discussion in this video Styling the inline links on the modernist page, part of Typography for Web Designers.
In this lesson we're going to make the Inline links in the modern bibliography…look different from the navigation links at the top of the page.…You need the files biblio_ sans_difflinkstates.html and…biblio_sans_difflinkstates. css from the Exercise folder.…Open up the HTML file in the browser to see what we're working with.…All the navigation links are in place from the last lesson and look great.…But we're going to have to change our inline links.…Before we do this, let's change our text color to black as we planned at the…start of this chapter.…
That will help our inline links stand out.…In the universal selector, we'll change our text color to black.…We'll save and review in our browser.…So we know how to set up two different sets of links in our CSS, but design wise,… how should we style our Inline links so they work in a system with…the navigation links?…We can't use the background colors.…My recommendation is to use the same color palette, just apply it to the text of…the links, not to the background of the links.…
