I saw few posts asking about changing hyperlink text colors. And there are many camps regarding this topic. Suzanne Boben would recommend editing template XML . Some would recommend editing published HTML code. Some would recommend editing CSS code.

But it came down to couple things.
1) proficient in XML, HTML or CSS
2) tried different colors, but it did turned out as expected

One easy way is editing CSS files, this only apply to pages' hyperlink text; if your text got turn to PNGs, read no further .
iWeb generates a CSS file for the associated HTML page - CSS file is in the Page_files folder.
Edit the CSS files and keep copies of them, then you won't have to edit them again the next time you publish you sites.

These CSS files are quite easy to understand, all you have to do is to look for a { , a:visited { and a:hover { .
They contain RGB (Red Green Blue) values for link color, visited link color and rollover color.

But what about those #8000FF and #4c4c4c?
Well, I know they are RGB hexadecimal color values, but I don't what colors they are, so I came up with Argiope (Argiope is a family colorful spiders).
It's a colors picker application to help with choosing background color, link color and rollover color. It'll give you the exact RGB hexadecimal value of chosen color.

You can find Argiope here. Enjoy
