We have been generating a PDF with blue hyperlinks to go on the 
installation CD and another with black hyperlinks for the book printer for 

Just include a character format in the cross-reference format, then change 
its colour globally between Black and Blue.  Also include the char format 
on the TOC and IX reference pages and anywhere else you want a hyperlink 
to be either Black or Blue (without hitting it with a stick).

For example, 

        <l Link>?<$paratext>? on page\ <$pagenum></>

where </> is equivalent to <Default Para Font>.
