Default anchor link not working in IE6

Hello Everyone,

This is the line which causes the problem

<div id="home" style="position:absolute;" class="none"><a href="home.jsp"><img src="../images/home.png" /></a></div>

When I move the mouse over the image,it doesnt recognise the anchor tag.ie it does not turn into a "hand" symbol and clicking on it doesnt take me to the home page.It works well in IE7 and Firefox.The problem is only using IE6.
Any help will be appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

You can manually set the cursor for that...

<div id="home" style="position:absolute; cursor:auto" class="none">
<a href="home.jsp"><img src="../images/home.png" /></a>

and if Auto doesn't do what you want try Default

If you try the code you posted you'll find that it doesn't have the problem you describe. Which tells us the problem is elsewhere in your code. Please post the URL to a page that displays the problem.

Without having seen the page, I guess that maybe you use more absolute positioning and something is covering up your link. But that's just a guess.
