    Are nofollow detecting plugins always right?

    I have nodofollow installed on firefox, and have begun a guest blogging campaign, where I write actual high quality articles for quality blogs in my niche. I have screened out the ones that appear to use nofollow links in the author bios, but I heard from someone that the nofollow tag can be a part of the stylesheet, effectively fooling the plugin, making it show a link as dofollow when it actually isn't.

    Is there any truth to this? If so, are there any better tools out there that are more accurate? Thanks!

    That would be a false claim. I'm sure someone can style NOFOLLOW links differently but a STYLE SHEET can neither pass nor prevent the passing of PageRank.
