Dunno... I've actually never thought of doing anything to an anchor. 
I've always treated it as almost sacred. :) If I want a link
centered, colored, bold, italic, or whatever, putting the tags
outside the anchor works just fine...and shouldn't violate any specs.

In other words:

  <FONT COLOR="#000000"><A HREF="some link">click me</A></FONT>
