Thank you for looking into this Jerome.
I think that making all of the link text bold, might give a larger area of color
for the eye to make a comparison with.

Also, or alternatively, a more desaturated blue, or just a middle gray color for
the visited link would help to enhance the contrast between the two types of
links.

Or maybe just a very dark blue vs a very light blue.

Anything would work, so long as they are easily differentiated.  I honestly
don't care if we use black and white or green and red.   ;)
