In both cases you are trying to put a box object pair (table, and anything else that takes a border) inside an inline tag pair (anchor). This does not work. There are very few things you can put inside an anchor tag pair.

There are a few ways to solve this:

1. Put an onhover and onclick calls on a box object to call JavaScript routines that change the background color or border color, and/or call the link.

2. Use an image of the box and text. You CAN put an image inside the anchor tag pair.

3. Use a button (form object) with your text in it. The entire button (and its styles) is active.

4. Be content with just the text being sensitive.
