Why will red not work today??

    Hi there
    I always change my post’s links to red. I’ve checked that the html is indeed correct. I’ve tried changing the colour specified to (say) green or blue, as a test. The number changes but the link simply will not change from grey. What am I missing? I tried deleting the link and starting the words and link over again, but still nothing happens. The green headers are green, the red links are still grey!
    Can anyone help please?

    The blog I need help with is ctamh.wordpress.com.

    The span tags need to be inside the a tags:

    Wow – how odd. I’ve done that and it’s now fine – but I wonder how it happened, since I was working in the visual editor. I only looked at the html to see if the red code was indeed red. Oh well, much obliged. Thank you!!

    Yes: odd, but from several other threads on the forum in the past few days, and from some weird things I have noticed, I’d say that staff is changing the way the visual editor works.
    Things most likely will settle down once ‘they’ finish whatever is being experimented with…

    appreciate your thanks…
