Can I *please please* ask that you don't make the common design error (see
Jakob Neilsen www.useit.com for details) of styling your links

I hate having to mouse over an entire page looking for navigation.

I'm saying this publicly, because it's a common problem when designers don't
understand usability, and it sometimes gets copied by programmers who think
they're doing the right thing.  No.  Wrong.


        a { text-decoration: none }

should *never* be used, unless you've also done something else that uniquely
says "this is a link" (different color, different font, something!).
