Double border with Title and Links

  • We have the title of picture, link1, the picture with link2, and a third link
  • We use this HTML :

<div style="style of div block">Title of picture<br>

<a href="URL of link1"
title="title of link1"
style="border: 0 none ;
text-decoration: none;"
target="_blank">link 1</a>

<a href="URL of link 2"
title="title of link 2"
style="border: 0 none ; text-decoration: none;
background-color: transparent;">

<img src="URL of picture"
style="style of picture"
title="title of picture"
alt="alt text for picture"></a><br>

<a href="URL of link 3"
title="title of link 3"
style="border: 0 none ; text-decoration: none;">
link 3</a>


  • CSS, style of div block :
border: medium double #f00;
padding: 6px;
background: #c3d9ff;
width: 300px; /* width of picture + 20 pixels */
margin: auto;
text-align: center;
font-weight: bold;
color: #a90707;

  • CSS, style of picture :
border: 1px solid #000;
width: 280px; /* width of picture */
margin: 3px 0;

  • The result :

  • We use a div block containing a picture
  • For gold color we use #ffd700

<div style="margin: auto;
width: 309px; /* width of pic + 2 * border */
border:1px solid #000;
background: #FFD700;">

<a href="URL of link"
title="title of link"
style="background-color: transparent; border: 0 none; text-decoration: none;">

<img src="URL of picture"
style="width: 297px; border: 6px solid #FFD700;"
