Hi Micheal,

That color filter thing is great!

I tried removing the underlines in Photoshop, and it's a real strain to see 
the links. Shame - the other forms of color blindness were fine.

I like the idea of being selective, but I'm terrified at how it would be 
implemented. I get the feeling that one style or the other would be used 
depending on the whims of however was using it, rather than in an logical 
and consistent way. I suppose it could be tried, and if we see them used 
inapropriately just pull the plug on the experiment.

Perhaps the best way is to have a style like:

li.Toc a {text-decoration: none;}

rather than
a.NoUnderline {text-decoration: none;}

Which would invite misuse.
