|Nice article. I'd like to know how to this from the client perspective. I recall wiping out the contents of my Temporary Internet Files folder only to still see my visited links appear in the visited color|

|For our site, yes we do care whether the link looks old or new due to updated content would seem as if it were old. This gives some simple alternatives and I found it very useful as well as the discussions that followed. |

My only problem was not the article, but that it is too wide. Nobody likes to scroll side-to-side.
All in all, this site is fantastic.

The article states that this technique is for sites that use the same URL to link to updated articles. Thus, using vlink is beside the point since the idea is not to override the color of all visited links, but only visited links that now point to updated content.
Secondly, the color of a link -- either visited or unvisited -- is a clue to the visitor of whether a particular link has already been visited. While some users may ignore -- or even be ignorant of -- the meaning of the link color, other users will not, and might not click on such a link as a result. While this article is in no way ground-breaking, it is part of a resource of knowledge that web designers can use to their advantage. Because of that, it is worthwhile, and not silly, in my opinion.

VLINK changes every link on the page. Using CSS you can localize the color changes. See our discussion forums with IE4 or later to see how we are using this (unread threads are bold, read threads are not bold - links that are not threads are not effected).
