How do I change the color of specific links?

How do I change the color for specific links on a page? I've tried various methods that seem like they should work, but none of them have.

Is there code that can be used on a page to set the color for a specific link?

For example, I want to make the link on this template lighter so that I can make the template itself darker.

How specific? Use can place the link inside span tags. The wiki-text...

<span class="Uniq1234">[[MediaWiki]]</span>

will produce the link "MediaWiki". You can edit your personal CSS or MediaWiki:common.css to change the link color.

span.Uniq1234 a { color: green; }

If you're not an admin (and can't edit common.css) you can also do things like [[foo|<span style="color:green">foo</span>]] to give you foo. If you do have admin access, Allen4names method is probably the best one.
