It is interesting that in the ARchivesCanada2.0 interface all the hyperlink text that is presented on the purple background are white. For example, Box name, Export links, Import links. The result is that the user has no idea that the hyperlinks are active unless they hover over the white text and see that there is a white hand icon.

I'm not sure it is a bug. But I wanted to get feedback from the AtoM team on this design feature.

I never thought this was a problem. The alternative would be to use blue, but that won't work on the purple background. White seems to be pretty catching.
