Hyperlink Recordset Image In PHP. Is there a way to do this?

Is there a way to hyperlink a recordset with an image using php?
I have attached two codes, the second one uses asp code and it works fine.

I have to now use mysql server that uses php. Can I accomplish this using php similar to what I did using ASP?

The first code is php with the field 'datasheet' actually being a hyperlink in my database table.
The field Type in the MYSQL database is 'Char'.

Thank you...

<td><?php echo $row_ESCAlternatives['DataSheet']; ?></td>


<a href="<%=(Recordset1.Fields.Item("DataSheet").Value)%>" target="_blank" class="style7"><span class="style6 style1 Forms"><img src = "/images/photoshop/tiny-pdf-page.gif" width="16" height="16" border="0"></span></a>

Thank you very, very, much!!!!
I am certainly not a PHP expert at all. Took me a few minutes to get your code to work. (Cut/Paste
doesn't always leave the quotes, dahses, etc where they are supposed to be.)

It works perfect!

Thank you for your quick response.
