Display a URL

Hello,
can anybody tell me how to display a URL only if it has not been viewed already?
:)
Thanks,
Mira

You can use a CSS like this:

a:visited
{
display: none;
}

Philipp has answered the "how", but would you indulge my curiosity
and answer the "why"?

Can't answer for Mira, but I've done that a few times, going back to
pre-CSS days.

My newsreader very helpfully hides messages and threads I've already
read or killfiled (though I can manually override it). The exact same
behaviour is one such application on the Web.

Sounds like a good use for a user stylesheet for reading usenet on the
web (such as with google groups).

I haven't considered that. In any case, it wasn't an option in 1995
when I implemented it.
