With the requirements of Section 508, it is important that the following two criteria always be met when you are working with links:
- Use of Color: Links must have a 4.5:1 color ratio with the surrounding text, background and have text decoration applied on focus and hover. This text decoration can be bold or underline.
- Links that go to two different locations must be distinguishable by having unique link text. If they share the same link text then they must have a title attribute with a unique description of the link that distinguishes the two links.
