Why does chrome display valid links with line-through?

Has anyone any idea how I stop chrome from displaying perfectly valid links with a line through them. It looks as if they are broken, but if you click on them, they are fine.

I've tried specifying

text-decoration: none

, but it still happens. I don't even use this attribute (line-through) anywhere in the style sheet.

<html>

<head>
	<style>

		a { text-decoration: none; }

	</style>
</head>

<body>

<a href="http://google.com">Google.com</a>

</body>

</html>

Works fine on IE, Chrome, FireFox.

I have worked this out. I'm using the plugin SEO Quake, and these links are no follow. Presumably on "normal" people's pages, the effect won't occur (it goes away when I disable the plugin).

I recommend you add a valid doctype if you dont have one. I didnt see it in your code above. Otherwise you'll discover and face more cross browser problems in the future.

@ztini
text-decoration: none; does not fix this. Only disabling SEO Quake plugin fixed it.

You only need doctype in html prior to v 5

Are you sure about that? I never heard of it... In any case, it definitely is best to declare a doctype.

lol Is this your own personal opinion or do you have some research to back it up?

The fact is, you dont have to declare a valid doctype to view some web pages, but to expect cross browser compliance and code validation, you have to have one.

makes no odds to me, as it wasn't my code you were disputing

I had the exact same problem and disabling seo quake fixed it for me as well. I believe tiggsy was correct in thinking that this was just seo quakes way of designating no follow links :)
