Link Colors Incorrect in IE

P: 5
I designed my page in Dreamweaver and have checked it in Netscape, FF, and IE. All is fine, except in IE. I set my page links to be the same color (#666666) for display and visited. I have a border around my images that is grey. In IE, it displays my border as blue and purple for the visited link. Why is it ignoring my commands to display the links as #666666?

I can do a quick "fix" for the problem, as shown with the first picture, by removing the grey border completely. However, I don't want to circumvent the problem. I would like to figure out why it is doing this and fix it!

Thanks for your help.

becuase IE has alink hover vlink and link
alink = active link
hover = when mouse is over
vlink = visited link
link = untouched link

Though, out of curiosity, I wonder if anyone knows the answer to this:

When I added this code: <BODY LINK='#666666' VLINK='#666666' ALINK='#666666'> it fixed the problem. I use Dreamweaver and work some in the "design" mode and some in the "code" mode. I added the above code while in the code mode. When I switched to design, my background was white (I have it set as black), my text formatting was gone, and everything looked strange. However, it still displays correctly in all just looks weird in Dreamweaver. My solution is to add that last bit of code when I no longer need to visually edit my webpage. However, does anyone know why this might be happening in my editing program?
