This depends on your content; if you can set a class on those links,
it's quite easy. For example, I occasionally use GIFs with transparent
backgrounds as links (logos and such), and don't want the
background-color from a hovered link to show up there. So I simply give
those links a class I can select and alter with CSS. For example:
<a class="image" href="http://example.com"><img src="picture.gif" /></a>
and in the CSS:
background-color: transparent !important;
The !important is there because I've occasionally run into browser
quirks or oddities related to the cascade which can cause other rules to
take a higher precedence; this way the rule is always applied.
And if you don't want to take the time to change all of those link tags
"document.getElementsByTagName("A")" and then iterating over the
returned array looking for those links which have an image as a child,
you could dynamically add the "class" attribute to only that particular
subset of links. It wouldn't be too hard and would probably only take a
few lines of scripting.
