FAQ: Why can’t I click on the hyperlink which contains an image?

I have the following construct in my html page.

<a href="http://bing.com"><img src="bing.jpg"/></a>


I am unable click on this hyperlink. Why?


In this case, the hyperlink does not have a clickable point. The image completely covers the hyperlink. You can click on the image though. In most applications, we find that click on the image is correct expected behavior.
