Remove underline from links in epub

Hi,

I've tried these two codes in the css override box to remove the blue hyperlink and underline but they aren't working.

a {text-decoration: none; color: black;}
a href {text-decoration: none; color: black;}

Am I using the wrong codes? Or do I need to add the css to the epub file?

I'd appreciate any and all help,

Thanks!


EDIT: Nevermind! I found the answer. I needed to use this code instead.

a {text-decoration: none; color: black;}
a [href] {text-decoration: none; color: black;}

It doesn't work for me. I go to Preferences>User Stylesheet and copy your text and it still doesn't work

with some readers you have to completely remove the <a>.....</a> tags to stop the blue underlines from showing

How to do that? I am not very skilled in stuff like that, but this is very annoying

Try
Code:
a:link, a:link * {
  color: #000 !important;
  text-decoration: none !important;
}
Sometimes the link elements may contain child elements which are styled instead of the links themselves. It just depends on how the particular html was written. Example:
Code:
<a href="file1.html" class="toc"><span class="blue"><span class="underline">Acknowledgments</span></span></a>
The span styles will override the parent link styles.

get skilled or get help. each book is different, there are no shortcuts.

On my Sony devices, anything that is in <a> tags will appear as blue underline, none of the solutions posted here will over-ride that. Other devices may behave differently but for Sony, the only fix is to strip out the <a> tags with calibre editor or Sigil, or learn to live with it.

Thank you! It worked!
