underline links removed i sigil but showing in kindle previewer

Tried all ways to remove hyperlink underlines, I am using
a:link {color:#D2691E; text-decoration:none;}\na:visited {text-decoration:none;}\na:hover {text-decoration:none;}

Looks fine in sigil but reverts to underline links in kindle previewer

Not surprising. It is non-standard Amazon proprietary markup for Kindles.

@increase:

With all due respect, and I mean that, you know, you might find all of this much, MUCH easier if you would take a week or two, learn about eReaders, eReading formats, eBooks, and the code that works/doesn't work in eBooks, first. You're spending a lot of time flailing around, around things like footnotes, which are actually bog-standard and easy to code, because you've jumped in, head-first, without learning the basics first.

I mean, you're sitting here trying 10-year-old "mobipocket" code and wondering why it doesn't work. A little background, history and gounding in the code would save you time.

Here's a question--WHY are you trying to remove underlines? How do you expect your reader to know that it's a link, if you remove the underline? Does that mean you don't want them to click it? If you don't, then, why is it a link?

If you don't want people clicking it, then remove the link. If you do want people clicking it, then what's your reason for hiding the link from the reader? On eInks, how can they see it to know that it's clickable?
