How to set link height via CSS

I am trying to prototype a server control in Visual Studio 2008.  I am using ASP.Net 3.5.  For some reason I cannot set the height of link tag.  The image it is using is a 24 pixels tall and it looks like the link tag only uses 22 pixels.  Below is the sample code which also has the CSS associated with it.  I attached one image that shows how the button is being cut off at the bottom.  The other image is the Gif file used with the code.
<%@ Page Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeBehind="Default.aspx.cs" Inherits="CustomControlsTestPage._Default" %>
 
<%@Register TagPrefix="APRCC" Namespace="APR.CustomControls.Web" Assembly="APR.CustomControls" %>
