On some of my images that I use as links a blue border is created around the image. How do I remove this? What is causing this?

An example is the Play Football logo at the bottom of  this page:

Add border="0" to the hyperlink.... By default HTML will create that ugly blue border when you use a picture as a URL ;).

To add on to previous experts comments,

write the css for img and anchor in a generic fashion to remove the borders. Add below to ur application CSS file.

a{
    border:0;
}

img{
  border:0;
}


In case of altering border for certain images .. you can use css class


.imgNoBorder{
  border:0;
}

.imgBorder{
  border:2px;
}

<img src="a.jpg' class="imgNoBorder"/>

<img src="b.jpg' class="imgBorder"/>

Oops missed ur fix part.To fix the image border that  you mentioned you need to add border="0" for img tag. Below would fix ur current problem

<img height="152" width="250" src="images/widget_play_football_250x152.gif" border="0"/>

Just append border=0 for your img tag.

Whenever an image is made to serve as a hyperlink, this happens.
