In Oxbridge Notes, I always had massive difficulty overriding the base styles
a tags, especially when they had pseudo classes (e.g.
A website is filled with links — and they have very different styling requirements depending on whether they are in the header, the footer, the main text, the navigation, etc. Better to leave them relatively blank style-wise.
Another issue with the pseudo-classes is that they had 10 to the specificity — i.e. the same as a regular class. This made them awkward to override.
