Get Rid Of Hyperlink Boarder Around Icons

Get rid of the hyperlink border around icons placed inside of hyperlinks. Some
of
effectiveness of small icons are lost when they are used as hyperlinks and
the traditional border is placed around the icon. These hyperlink borders
overwhelm some of the smaller icons. This piece of script will remove the
border from the icon. Also notice that this icon is used in a view, but is
not in a column of it's own. The icon is actually part of the text used in
that column and not in a "Show as icon" column. I use this script in
response docs and place a very small blinking arrow gif in front of the
column text to help distinguish responses from main messages and helps the
reader to keep his/her place while opening messages. The blinking animation
is very helpful.
Script:
I use this script in my response column...

AuthorName := @If(!@IsAvailable(From);" ";@Name([CN]; From));
@If(@IsResponseDoc ; "[<img src=\"/icons/vwicn104\" Border=\"/0\" >]";"
")+" "+@UpperCase(@Text(TaskStatus)) +
@UpperCase(@If(@IsAvailable(TaskStatus); ": "; "")) +@LowerCase(@If(Subject
!= ""; Subject + " "; "") + "(" + AuthorName + " " +@Text( @Created ) +")")
