hypertext only has meaning when using an online reader such as
Acrobat Reader or Xpdf. All these packages will display color. So
I would change the color of the linked text to blue or cyan.

You don't say if you are using regular or "plain" pdftex or
pdflatex. But using an example from the pdftex example.tex

\Cyan the previous view\Black

Color must be enabled of course first.
