TOC hyperlink styles

I have to create a Word template which contains a table of contents on a 
purple background and body content on a white background.

The table of contents is a list of anchor links and there are links within 
the body copy. How can I make the two types of links different colours? 
Ideally I want the links in the body copy to use Word's in-built 'hyperlink' 
style (which I've customised) and the TOC links to use a custom style (white 
text for the purple background).

I've tried every trick I know of and Google has been of no assistance. Help 
me please.

Hyperlinks in a TOC are not formatted with the Hyperlink (or any other) 
character style; the Hyperlink style is suppressed as long as the links are 
active (but, ironically, will show up if you unlink the TOC), and any 
character style you apply will be removed when the TOC is updated. But you 
can define the TOC styles as having purple shading (or put a purple 
AutoShape Behind Text on the TOC pages) and format the font of the styles as 
white (if you use Automatic and the shading is dark enough, the text will 
reverse to white automatically).

Styles not applying correctly 05-14-10
