The core doesn't set a color for a.createlinktext, so if your skin CSS file 
has a color definition, it will not be overridden.

For other CSS properties, later definitions of the same property override 
previously defined ones. There are three ways to deal with this. One is to use 
the "!important" keyword for the property that shouldn't be overriden, eg :

  a.createlinktext { text-decoration: underline !important; }

then, the core definition "text-decoration: none" will not have effect.

The second way, and certainly the better one, is to define your changes after 
the core CSS, that is, place them in the files:

These files are loaded after the skin CSS and the core CSS so any styles 
defined in them override previous definitions (except those with !important).

This third way is also a good solution - you can define and use styles 
different from the default ones.
