How to modify the link style?

Hi, we are using the Documentation theme in Confluence 3.5.

The hyperlinks in these theme are underlined only on mouse over,

but in general the links are not underlined and therefore harder to see than necessary.

(I believe, underlying links is a good practice and mostly common in the web)

Can you help me with the exact spelling of the css entry to add to the space stylesheet,

so I can override the theme settings?


For future Confluence versions, I'd suggest to make underlining of hyperlinks the default

(or make it configurable)

I'm ended up with this stylesheet entry:

.wiki-content a {
text-decoration:underline !important;

Reason why I liked this more: It does only modify the links' appearence in the content area, not anywhere else.

In Space Admin > Look and Feel > Stylesheet click Edit and add the following css rule:

a:link, a:visited, a:active {  
  text-decoration: underline;  

I was advised to add !important , so the system defaults are being overwritten.

Thanks anyway.
