RIP <blink>

I have just learned by accident that the venerable <blink> tag is now unsupported in Internet Explorer 8. Needless to say, I am guessing that my desire to usher the blink tag back into common use (circa 1994 or so) may not get off the ground now.

    @shankar, I think the problem is that the link is an inline element. Try to add display:inline-block; to its CSS styles.
