If you want browser-compatible behavior, you really want multiple 
rectangles.  Consider this:


   <a href="something">
     <span style="position:absolute;
                  /* stick it somewhere */">
       Text
     </span>
     <span style="position:absolute;
                  /* stick it somewhere else */">
       More text
     </span>
   </a>
