Anyone find a way to turn off the default link underlining?

I submitted a bug that there's no preference to turn this off, but it'd be cool to find a way to in the meantime. Even Netscape 1.0 had this preference.

The lack of underline control can hardly be called a bug.

It may be a valid feature request, but it's not a bug. Just bear in mind this is a beta product, and there is no control over look or appearance other than basic font choices.

I didn't say it was a bug. I said I submitted a "bug" which is Safari's feedback method.

I stated it was a missing feature IMHO.

That's true. It should be called "Feedback" but I'm sure they want to use it to create more web site support rather than hearing about missing features. Too bad for them, I use it for the same thing. I've already sent a bunch of feedback.

BTW, using CSS for your default styles is very cool. I think that's a very powerful way to allow us to choose default colors and styles. I've never seen a browser which does that, yet.

Oh, it's incredibly cool. And according to the standards, browsers actually have to let you do it.

Actually, Mozilla and Chimera let you do it too; you put it in a file called "user.css" inside your profile. Opera has a little editor in its Preferences dialog, but it lets you use user CSS as well. The only ones which don't at this stage are OmniWeb, iCab, and IE/Mac.

Anyway, user CSS is very cool and insanely powerful. But there's a problem: no one has come up with a decent editor that can be integrated into browsers yet. Actual CSS coding is actually very simple, but more than most users are willing to do and not particularly Mac-like anyway. What's needed, therefore, is another way of editing user CSS.
