    Unhappy Tiny hyperlink line??

    So far this is the only thing that's really bugging me now. In between nearly all the images on my image gallery is this tiny line of hyperlink. If you click on it you will get a new page with the image that is right before the line. My question is how the heck do I get rid of it? I don't need two links to the same thing.
    Please take a look to see what I mean...

    Place the anchor and image on the same line
    Code:
    <a href="http://graphic-ills.com/mask1.jpg"><img height="75" width="65" border="0" alt="Mask" src="mask1.jpg"></a>

    also page does not validate.even though you have a html valid icon on the page.

    check the lines
    <DIV class=Slice-8>
    <DIV class=Slice-9>
    <DIV class=Slice-10>
    <DIV class=Slice-11>

    for malformed tags.
    I can remember when the air was clean and sex was dirty.

    Okay Fang I'll see if that makes a difference. And when I placed those validate buttons on there everything did validate. I have since then done other stuff and just haven't validated it yet. I wasn't asking if the page was valid

    No, but you did ask us to find your problem and the first step in trouble shooting is getting the page valid.

    Well I placed the anchor on the same line and voila no more tiny blue hyperlink, it's gone, Yay!. And the page was validating before and I was still getting that tiny line. I've just added some other stuff since the last time it did validate and I haven't validated it again after that. But I'm in the process of doing that now.

    Uhhh... isn't it valid? I clicked the link and it said "this page is valid HTML 4.01 transitional" or something similar to that.

    Change the DTD to a valid one.

    But you shouldn't be using a transitional DTD in the first place:
