pictures problem

I've got some weird junk going on in my pictures.

If you first go to www.cpsc.ucalgary.ca/~yuenm/index2.html

You'll see a bunch of buttons on the left hand side.  The problem is, some of the buttons have this little _ on the lower right hand side if you look at it in NN AND if you look at it in an old IE browser.  The funny part is it goes away if I do not make the picture a link (like "Home Page") but reappears if I do make it a link.

What's up?

HOwever, it's one of those real simple beginner mistakes.

Holy cow, I didn't you were so sensitive about this.  I just didn't feel it was what I was looking for....that's all.
If you answer this question and it fixes it, i'll give the "A" you want.

Looks to me like it is due to spliting your href tags across several lines.

try putting them on one line like below.

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">

<html>
<head>
     <title>Harpe and Associates</title>
</head>


<body>

          <td align="center" valign="top">

That you did. However when I answered with my comment your comment was not yet posted. While I was busy typing you must have already answered with your comment.

To explain what is happening (and what has been said above), <a> tags will make ALL content between them a link.  While an image does not get an underline, text does.  And a space is considered text.  Either there is a space after your image tag and before the new line or you are using a text editor with unusual encoding.

You <a> tag needs to be right next to your image tag (with no gaps).  <a><img ...></a>
