We no longer use any of those (3.0 code) for a reason they are far too overreaching. It’s not something I would recommend as it’s bad practice to style the a tag at all. It a better practice to add those to the class for the links you are editing for example the post link class. You could safely add those pseudo elements to those. Lastly never ever use :link it’s deprecated as of like ie6
