Description Tom Schneider 2009-05-27 09:42:29 UTC
I was trying to download rsync for the first time and was on the download page but could not find any links.  After a while I stumbled into the fact that the links are active (show up as a hand instead of an arrow) but otherwise are buried in the  text.  This makes it very difficult to locate a link even if I know one is there.

I pulled the entire page down to find the source of the problem.  Simply by removing the line:

<BODY BGCOLOR="#ffffff" TEXT="#000000" VLINK="#292555" LINK="#292555" ALINK="#cc0033"
style="margin-top: 0">

I got my usual blue links and purple for followed links.

Having links underlined would be an improvement too but I don't know why
that doesn't happen.

Anyway, this is a suggestion to make the links visible so people actually can figure out how to download rsync.

(I am running the SeaMonkey browse on the latest Mac OSX, if that matters.)

(Once I downloaded, configured and did make - it was very smooth.  Good job there!)

I'm not sure why the links don't show up underlined for you, since they are underlined by default and nothing in the pages affects that setting.

I have decided to go ahead and switch to the default link colors for the rsync pages.

I'm not sure why either but it seems to be a setting in my browser since it doesn't show in SeaMonkey but does in Safari.  I can't find a control for it in SeaMonkey though!

That works now and I can see the links in color.  Thanks!  Resolved as far as I'm concerned.
