We don't have to, but it was just the simplest/quickest fix I could come

This is fine with me. You could even ad that class to the table. I think 
a more viable solution would be to use Jquery to ad a class="image" to 
any anchor tag that has an image as the first child. Then style that 
with css to not have a border.

It was set to 1 pixel inset so you might not have noticed the depressed 
look. It's styled the same way now.

It looks like a javascript file isn't being called or it's not working 
properly. I haven't been able to figure out what's going on with this yet.

Okay, I get it now. Yes let's use link group, that makes much more sense.
