Div link does not work properly

Hi,

I got a small issue with a page.
I'm using the following CSS to make a div clickable:
.divclick {
	position: absolute;
	display: block;
	width: 100%;
	height: 100%;
	top: 0px;
	left: 0px;
}

Open in new window


This works great in Chrome etc., but not in IE.
In IE the "text" in the div is not clickable. How can I fix that?
I have tried to make the div a higher z-index, but that does not work.

<td style="position:relative;">
	<?php echo $old_fetch['id']; ?>
	<a class="divclick" href="/c/<?php echo $old_fetch['id']; ?>.html"></a></td>

Open in new window

Thers is not text in the link, and you will not get any height in IE if you have no content. Put a non-breaking space in the link:

<a class="divclick" href="/c/<?php echo $old_fetch['id']; ?>.html">&nbsp;</a>

And that should give IE what it needs to expand the size of the box for the link.
