Print Story Doing the CSS/HTML impossible: clickable BKG IMG
It's impossible to make a background image in CSS clickable. There are work-arounds which don't work, tricks that don't truck, and solutions that the authors vote up with their sock puppets.

They can't be sized any smaller, not without people squinting. And other widget/gui approaches are even uglier.
