Accessibility: transparency and links

I've read the thread: "Interaction with invisible elements"

I am a teacher, and my students have learning difficulties and cannot read*.
I am having a similar problem with transparency and links.

A testcase that clearly demonstrates the problem is here....
moving the mouse over the smaller icon will change the location or link.
This is a very confusing message and is severely limiting development of our
project A more complex beta site that requires IE5.5,
javascript and cookies,
it demonstrates the potential for non-literate users to move linked images
to suit their interests.
It has been very well received by my students, unlike some other sites I
have designed.

It has been suggested that this 'may' be a CSS issue, and that I could raise
issue with .

There is no immediate rush, but I would appreciate your attention to this
matter, and some comments on its likely development.

*similarly text readers are not particularly helpful, also SVG and imagemaps
are not ideal routes either....
