Links Want To Be Links

Two comments (and a small note):
1) According to Nielsens study on visited/active link colours, yes, users saw blue as active and red/purple as visited, but it *didn't* matter what shade. In fact, several usability studies have indicated the brash default colours are too distracting when it comes to trying to actually read the text.
2) From the research I've read, there is no difference in usability between white on black and black on white-- it's the contrast that is the issue. Black on white is a print hold-over-- what are you basing your white on black comments on?
Just interested in clarification and myth-debunking--
