image link is too big… how do I make smaller?

  • # August 11, 2008 at 1:55 pm

    My javascript link area is much bigger than the image itself. How do I make it just where the image is. The page is <> the link is in the header and says "Listen Now" . If you mouse over you will see that the link area extends up quite aways and to the left also. I am obviously doing something wrong but I can’t figure out how to do it differently. Thanks in advance.

    Thanks. Of course it worked great. And I now understand more about how to do it next time. Again thanks.
