Welcome to our test link tutorial page.  For a demonstration of link behavior follow the instructions below:

  1. Before starting this tutorial, it is imperative that you clear your Internet Explorer history.
    • Open IE -> Go to the "Tools" menu -> select "Internet Options" -> click the "Clear History" button.
  2. Below is a list of link styles that I have access to (link1, link5, link8, link11).  There are two links per style.  The first points to a low traffic page on SPIE.ORG.  The second will link to Google.com.  While previewing this page (right -> preview), click the links to Google to see their visited (VLINK) behavior.
    • Link1; standard text:  Pointing to an unvisited portion of spie.org
    • Link1; standard text:  Pointing to Google.com
    • Link5; standard text:  Pointing to an unvisited portion of spie.org
    • Link5; standard text:  Pointing to Google.com
    • Link8; standard text:  Pointing to an unvisited portion of spie.org
    • Link8; standard text:  Pointing to Google.com
    • Link11; standard text:  Pointing to an unvisited portion of spie.org
    • Link11; standard text:  Pointing to Google.com
  3. Examine this text.  It is a sign of the issues affecting our content entry and styling.  By pressing enter and styling the next list item to "Standard" we see that text color and formatting (bold, italics, underline, etc) are inherited.
  4. (body3) Further complicating this issue is that the edit pane of the DHTML editor displays text that is formatted correctly as though there were errors.  For examples, look below at the Link5 re-test:

 

 

Link5 re-test:  Link5 style link

"Link5 re-test:" was set back to standard for the above test, which appeared in the DHTML editor to change the style of "Link5 style link".  As we see, selecting "Standard" for the text before a new link, the link style is changed to Link1, though its color is inherited from a previous portion of the page.

Link5 re-test:  Link5 style to Google.com

"Link5 re-test:" was left as-is though in the DHTML editor it appears to be the same color as Link5 will be when previewed.

 



This is the color Link5 should be.

This is the color Link8 should be.
