I still don't see this effect on the pages you mention.  But see below.

No, it wasn't fixed.

With verbose images on ("as links"), I see a difference on the links with
"Windows XP". When the links are not highlighted, the color-style coloring
ends before the line, but when those links are highlighted, the
highlighted part is a little longer.


The link for unipermak.html also isn't colored properly (for color-style).


The second and third links aren't colored properly (still related to color

I'll build a non-color-style version and look at those, since I suspect
that's what you're using.
