With a layout thats basically black-on-white, I'd strongly suggest not
specifying any link color at all. Just use the browser defaults.
I think that link colors should only be overridden when there is an
overarching color scheme which deviates sufficiently far from "black
on white" that the change is required for visibility.
Having a small "this is a link" glyph isn't a bad visual cue either,
though its not all that common and may irk some folks.
