I would like to develope a table with the top fiction selling books at Amazon.com. I know how to do that. I have html code that which I want to be the link which the visitor does not see. What they see now is the image which makes my table huge requiring one to scroll. All I want them to see is the text and when they click on that, they go to Amazon. http://www.yqcomputer.com/

You need to check with Amazon to see if they offer text links.

George,

Part of the problem is that you're putting the link in an iframe (inline
frame). This is a "window" which displays the contents of another page
inside of it.

Is this code as provided by Amazon, or something you developed? I'm not an
associate and don't care to sign up just to figure this out, but I noticed
that they have a "Build-a-Link" tool that you can probably use to build text
only links. That may be a good place to look.

Good luck!

What you need to do is determine the ISBN number for each book and add
that into the unique string for Amazon that identifies you as the
affiliate.

I do it inside a table like this (this is for Amazon.ca but the format
is I think identical for Amazon.com):

<TR>
<TD width="626" height="37"><B><FONT size="2">Thatch, Nancy R.,
Melton,
David, & Moser, Adolph J. <SUP>1</SUP><BR>
<A
href=" http://www.yqcomputer.com/
RE"
target="_blank">Don't Rant and Rave on Wednesdays! The
Children's Anger
Control Book</A>. Landmark Editions, 1994</FONT></B>
</TD>
</TR>

What your visitor sees is this:
Thatch, Nancy R., Melton, David, & Moser, Adolph J. 1
Don't Rant and Rave on Wednesdays! The Children's Anger Control Book.
Landmark Editions, 1994

and clicking on the title opens a new page on Amazon with the book
description and ordering info.
