    The first example below doesn't work
    In I.E.: The image appears but the text and image are unclickable
    In Opera: Everything works as it should
    In Mozilla: Everything looks as it should but isn't clickable
    In the Second example it works but nothing has changed except that the
    ad is different. Can anyone spot the problem.


    Example One - Doesn't work:
    (here is a link to the offending page)
    http://www.hissandpop.com/celebrities/j/angelinajolie/indexb.shtml

    <center><A
    HREF="http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0743470230/hissandpop-20"><IMG
    SRC="ads/book.jpg" border="0" width="90" height="140" alt="Angelina
    Jolie's Journals" hspace="3" vspace="3"></A><br>
    <img src="../../../graphics/line.jpg" width="100%" height="1"><br>
    <A
    HREF="http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0743470230/hissandpop-20">Angelina

    Jolie's Journals</A></center>

    Example Two - Does Works:
    (here is a link to this page)
    http://www.hissandpop.com/celebrities/j/angelinajolie/indexc.shtml

    <center><A
    HREF="http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/B00007EPJ6/hissandpop-20">
    <IMG SRC="http://www.hissandpop.com/ads/B00007EPJ6.01.TZZZZZZZ.jpg"
    width="61" height="90" border="0" alt="Segway" hspace="3"
    vspace="3"></A><br>
    <img src="http://www.hissandpop.com/graphics/line.jpg" width="100%"
    height="1"><br>
    <A
    HREF="http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/B00007EPJ6/hissandpop-20">Segway

    Human Transporter</A></center>

    So what's the difference. My problem here is that I don't want an ad for
    Segway. I want to change it.

    You are correct, it *is* offending :)

    (this is, after all, alt.html.critique)

    With that legacy code in there I would not even hazard to guess. It could be
    anything. You have a few of entity problems in there, maybe one of them is
    confusing the browsers error recovery. Hint, if the browser cannot find then
    end of a href attribute then the element may not be a link.

    Take it over to the validator at http://validator.w3.org and fix the errors
    first.

    Cheers
    Richard.

    I copied the good link into the page in question.
    I copied the string of numbers in the journals link and pasted it into the
    appropriate place.
    It works.

    There appears to be no reason for the problem. Sometimes bad stuff gets in
    the background where we can't see it and we have to get creative.

    I've posted the page at http://www.granatedit.com/jolie.html, but I've
    inadvertently changed the order of the items, which I'm sure you can easily
    fix.

    Bonnie I copied your code and now it seems to work. Don't know what went
    wrong but it took me over 24 hrs to get here. Thanks again.
