Links in On Hold message under posts are not visible. They are in black, as all the surrounding text.

enter image description here

("help center" has been clicked upon, but "edit the question" and "leave a comment" are not discernable)

Feature request: underline these links. (or, alternatively, change color scheme)

There's already a style rule in the site CSS that seems to be intended to underline links in the message box:

.question-status h2 a {
    text-decoration: underline;

Unfortunately, because of the h2 in the selector, it only applies to the username links in the message header (where it's actually redundant, since all links inside h2 headers in the main content area are already underlined by another rule).

Simply changing this rule to:

.question-status a {
    text-decoration: underline;

is sufficient to fix this bug.

Ps. I've included this rule (for skeptics.SE only) in the Stack Overflow Unofficial Patch v1.14 user script. I had to add an !important tag to it to make it also apply to :hover links without specificity hacks.
