Heh, wow.  It seemed to make perfect sense in my own twisted little 
head, but re-reading it...sorry, guys.  I must be more tired than I 
thought.  I'll try again.

When viewing a web page in Safari, when I click and drag an image 
around, usually a little version of the image follows the mouse around 
the screen.  (This is so I can drag it to the desktop or whatever.)

However...some images that are in CSS divs - and are links - don't 
behave like that.  Instead, I find myself dragging a little bookmark 
around the screen.  Does anyone know why they behave like this?  Should 
I care?

For an example, check out the jigsaw ball in the top left of the 
Wikipedia homepage:
