I often come across documents which either themselves or in associated
style sheets have something like the following -

a          {
           text-decoration: none :
           color : rgb(0,0,0) ;
           background-color: transparent

which Netsurf insists on ignoring - similar comments for a:hover, a:visited
apply although I know that pseudo-classes and pseudo-elements are not yet
