Hi there,
I have just put in a beautiful image gif for link and it is surrounded by  blue. This is because it is a link. Can anyone tell me how to get rid of this.

Cheers in advance
Will

Alternatively, get rid of the anchor tags round the image and add some event handlers to the image:

<img src="..." onmouseover="this.style.cursor='pointer';" onclick="document.location.href='[Link Address]';">

If you use CSS you could add the following and you would not have to define border="0" for every image in your HTML.

img      {
      border:0;
      }

Put this between the <head> and the </head> tags:

<style type="text/css">
.noborder { border: none;}
</style>

Then in the body, you can put this:

<a href="somewhere"><img src="myimage.gif" class="noborder"></a>


Your image link will then have no blue border.

This is silly. There's absolutely no reason to do this, and you make the link unusable by browsers that don't support JS.
