Problem with <div> disabling link

The following code works fine (I'm using php to fetch data from mySQL);


          echo '<a href="download_resume.php?download_file=' . $data['Resume'] . '&type=' . $data['Resume_type'] . '&size=' . $data['Resume_size'] . '">Download Resume</a><br>';
          echo '<a href="download_resume.php?download_file=' . $data['Cover'] . '&type=' . $data['Cover_type'] . '&size=' . $data['Cover_size'] . '">Download Cover</a><br>';

But I want these to appear side-by-side (on the same line), so I add:

      echo '<div id="resume_wrapper">';
          echo '<a href="download_resume.php?download_file=' . $data['Resume'] . '&type=' . $data['Resume_type'] . '&size=' . $data['Resume_size'] . '">Download Resume</a><br>';
       echo '</div>';
      echo '<div id="cover_wrapper">';
          echo '<a href="download_resume.php?download_file=' . $data['Cover'] . '&type=' . $data['Cover_type'] . '&size=' . $data['Cover_size'] . '">Download Cover</a><br>';
      echo '</div>';

with css:

#resume_wrapper {
      padding-top: 10px;
      padding-left: 0;
      padding-bottom: 20px;
      position: absolute;
      left: 0;
}

#cover_wrapper {
      padding-top: 10px;
      padding-left: 10px;
      padding-bottom: 20px;
      position: absolute;
      left: 165px;
}

Now the display is as I want it, but the hrefs no longer work. As I roll my cursor over the links I see nothing.

Any ideas?

This works with the piece of code you posted, ther has to be something else on the page that covers the divs with absolute positioning and disables the links. Need some more code too se what's wrong.

The code is too long to post here.

Since I don't know of anything that would disable a link, I solved the problem by using display: inline.

Thanks anyway
