hyperlinks in help:kubuntu docs appear ugly in Konqueror

Bug #367243 reported by skierpage
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
kubuntu-docs (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: kubuntu-docs

Visit help:/kubuntu/hardware/index.html in Konqueror, click a few links and return.

Result: Visited links such as Next and the pages you've seen appear in a horrendous pink; holding down the left mouse button on a link makes it turn red.

A visited link should dim slightly, not turn pink; since pressing makes a dotted box appear, no color change is necessary.
Compare with e.g. help:/gwenview/ in Konqueror.

I don't think this is a problem with the CSS, because if you view file:/usr/share/doc/kde/HTML/en/kubuntu/hardware/index.html you see the muted blue and dimmer blue links. The kubuntu-docs files refer to CSS with href="../../common/kubuntu-default.css", which seems legitimate but maybe not for help: pseudo-URLs.
