Windows live mail and images in the signature

Last Modified: 2012-06-27
I'm putting together a signature block for an email.  It starts with an image and then has my contact information.  I've saved it as an html file and am using it for my default signature.  the problem I am having is the when I create an email the image gets highlighted and the cursor does not appear in the "To..." box like it should .  I have to click there to start composing.    I'm including the html file here in case there's something obviously wrong with it.  Also the image always shows up as "3D" with shading around it, which I do not want.  Any help with that too would be useful.

I solved one thing.  The border.  when I had the picture selected, WLM added a picture formatting tab which allowed me to turn off the borders, and it had a "set as default" option which allowed me to keep them off in future emails.  One down, one to go.
