Anything served as text/html, though, will auto-close the first anchor
when a second begins.  And of course, IE doesn't accept
application/xhtml+xml, so for IE this suggestion doesn't work, even if
you're being completely pragmatic.  In which case you may as well just
use a transparent image, after all -- the question was how to do it in
a good, standard fashion.
