Hi All,

A friend called me and asked how to get something on his page to link to
another page.  I told him to put an a href tag around what he wanted as
the link.  He said I did that and it doesn't work.

He's right and I don't know how to make it work.  Following is a code
sample from his page.

How do you make the object element a link to a page in the site?

<table width="500" cellspacing="5" cellpadding="5" height="92"
border="8" bgcolor="#000000">
      <object classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000"
          width="468" height="60">
        <param name=movie value="hismovie.swf">
        <param name=quality value=high>
          src="hismovie.swf" quality=high
            type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="468" height="60">
          <a href="infopage.html"><img src="images/hispicture.jpg"
            width="468" height="60" border="0"></a>
