is it possible to have links that appear in the sidebar be a different color than the content links?  I can see via firebug that all the links in sidebar and page content are controlled via the <a> tag

 

here is a link to my site.

as you should see, I've added a soft grey background color to my sidebar widgets.  I would love to have the links in sidebar be white or black.  the content links can stay the orange color.

 

any suggestions or tips would be apprecated.
