    Question E-mail coding issue

    I admittedly am not the best CSS coder and therefore downloaded a template from a website to use for my e-mail newsletter I send out to my clients. Everything is working fine, however my links are either not showing up in gmail (blending in with the background) or are orange. Could someone point out what I'm doing wrong? Appreciate any help

    I've attached the code and pasted it below.

    <html><style type="text/css">

    </style><body bgcolor='#42C5EF' link="#000000" leftmargin="0" topmargin="0" marginwidth="0" marginheight="0" offset="0" >

    <STYLE>
    .headerTop { background-color:#FFCC66; border-top:0px solid #000000; border-bottom:1px solid #FFFFFF; text-align:center; }
    .adminText { font-size:10px; color:#996600; line-height:200%; font-family:verdana; text-decoration:none; }
    .headerBar { background-color:#FFFFFF; border-top:0px solid #333333; border-bottom:10px solid #FFFFFF; }
    .title { font-size:20px; font-weight:bold; color:#CC6600; font-family:arial; line-height:110%; }
    .subTitle { font-size:11px; font-weight:normal; color:#666666; font-style:italic; font-family:arial; }
    td { font-size:12px; color:#000000; line-height:150%; font-family:trebuchet ms; }
    .sideColumn { background-color:#FFFFFF; border-left:1px dashed #CCCCCC; text-align:left; }
    .sideColumnText { font-size:11px; font-weight:normal; color:#999999; font-family:arial; line-height:150%; }
    .sideColumnTitle { font-size:15px; font-weight:bold; color:#333333; font-family:arial; line-height:150%; }
    .footerRow { background-color:#FFFFCC; border-top:10px solid #FFFFFF; }
    .footerText { font-size:10px; color:#996600; line-height:100%; font-family:verdana; }
    a { color:#FF6600; color:#FF6600; color:#FF6600; }

    <span style="font-size:13px;color:#FFFFFF;font-family:arial;line-height:125%;">
    Times are tough right now and coming up with money to spend on marketing is not top priority... or is it? The Buchen Advertising study tracked sales after the 1949, '54, '58 and '61 recessions. It found that sales and profits dropped off at companies that cut back on advertising. The findings also revealed that sales lagged after the recession for those companies that cut back during the recession.

    There are many cost effective (and free!) strategies that can be put into place. Utilizing these tactics will allow you to establish deeper relationships with your customers, continue to brand your company, and improve your rankings with search engines.<br>

    <span style="font-size:13px;color:#FFFFFF;font-family:arial;line-height:125%;">
    Some definitions focus on marketing in terms of what it means to an organization, such as being the key functional area for generating revenue, while other definitions lean more toward defining marketing in terms of its most visible tasks, such as advertising and creating new products.
    <br>
    There probably is no one best way to define marketing, however, whatever definition is used should have an orientation that focuses on the key to marketing success- <b>Customers</b>.</span><br>

    Code:
    a { color:#FF6600; color:#FF6600; color:#FF6600; }
    that makes your links orange as FF6600 is the hex for orange. Change it to be the color you want.
    Stop making things so hard on yourself.
