When a hyperlink is added to body copy it appears in orange. It gets underlined on mouse-over but does not change color after selection. Hyperlinks that go to web pages should stay in the same window. Links that go to external sites or documents should open in a new window. ON THIS PAGE ONLY I violate that rule so that links to internal pages can be viewed as an example and then closed.

Content Heirarchy

Page titles are large orange, first level headings are large grey, third level headings on bold black. A content page with a good example of this structure is our International Business page.
