1. hyperref puts hyperlinks into dvi files but xdvi is responsible for
   displaying them.

2. hyperlinks in xdvi are *real* hyperlinks.  You can click on them
   with the mouse.

3. The xdvi manualpage mentions three options, -linkcolor,
   -visitedlinkcolor, and -linkstyle.  Hence it's up to you how they
   are displayed.

For more information please consult the documentation.  It provides
hints for a system-wide configuration.  I suppose that this is what
you are interested in.

Microsoft isn't the answer. Microsoft is the question, and the answer is NO.
