I just got another trick from someone who works with CSS fairly
regularly. He suggested this:

  a[href] {
      color: purple;

I didn't realize that CSS can select by attribute using square bracket
syntax. I had tried the pseudoclass technique earlier and found that
using a:hover and a:active would style the non-link content also.
a[href]:hover and a[href]:active seem to style only the actual links

So I'm using XHTML again.

Thanks for your help.
