Yes, I see.  I'd like to become as few of an expert as it suffices to  
personalize the look of hyerlinks in the typesets...

For example, with the attributes
	attr{/C [1 .5 0]/BS<</Type/Border/S/S/W 1>>}%
I get an orange border 1 point thick around the hyperlink in the on- 
screen view (but nothing in the print...).

If I wanted the border filled with an orange background?
If I wanted all that printed and not only displayed?

Thanks again... and again in advance ;-)
