Description Patrick Dunford 2004-10-05 07:40:09 UTC
Someone has taken it upon themselves to remove underlining on hyperlinks in the
body of Wikipedia articles.

The colour of hyperlinks which are not underlined is far too subtlely different
from black text to make hyperlinks stand out, particularly for those with poor
eyesight. This is especially true of hyperlinks only one word long.

Comment 1 Michael Keppler 2005-06-10 19:55:30 UTC
Whether hyperlinks are underlined or not, is a user option. For anonymous users
(and newly created users) underlines are enabled. Please check the preferences
of your Wikipedia account.
