linkColor gets/sets the color of links within the document.


color = document.linkColor
document.linkColor = color


  • color is a string representing the color as a word (e.g., "red") or hexadecimal value (e.g., "#ff0000").


The default value for this property in Mozilla Firefox is blue (#0000ee in hexadecimal).

document.linkColor is deprecated in DOM Level 2 HTML.

Alternatives involve the use of the CSS color property on either HTML anchor (<a>) links (e.g., a {color:red;}) or :link pseudo-class (e.g., :link {color:red;}).

Another alternative is, although this is deprecated in HTML 4.01.


document.linkColor = "blue";
