Do you want these differences to be global – to the entire site? If so, you would do this in the Styles palette. Choose Edit / Styles and use the Tag picker to choose link, hover, visited, or active. You can set a different color or almost anything else you like there.

If you want them to be specific to a page, then look in the Style tab of the Inspector (the paint brush icon) and you’ll see a batch of options at the bottom of the window.

If you want it to be specific to one link, then you will need to create a set of styles that have a Tag set like this, and an empty Name:

.fancy a:hover
.fancy a:visited
.fancy a:link
.fancy a:active

Each of those would have a specific set of colors or whatnot defined in them.

To create a tag-only style, you enter whatever code you want in the Tag field, then delete what Freeway enters in the Name field, then tab out of that field so it “sticks”.

The leading dot in the tag defines this as a “class-based” style. Because Freeway does not make it easy to add class definitions directly to the links themselves, you need to assign a “marker class” to the surrounding paragraph or to a container box, and then the links inside that container will be styled this way. To create that marker class, just create a new style with the Name set to fancy (or whatever you like, if you have multiple styles that you want). You don’t need anything in the Tag field, and you don’t need to make any other changes to the style. Just having that style with the same name as the tag-only link styles you created earlier allows you to assign it to the container and change all the contained links.
