Adding <forwardtoafriend> tags to an image

I'm trying to use a .png image instead of text for the <forwardtoafriend></forwardtoafriend> tags. This is the code that I'm using:

<forwardtoafriend><img src="images/email.png" alt="Forward to a Friend" width="32" border="0" editable="true" label="forward email image"></forwardtoafriend>

The email and image get displayed properly, but the link does not work when the image is clicked. Does anyone have a solution for this?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Hi juanrojodesign, it's not possible to use an editable image within <forwardtoafriend> tags, I'm sorry to say - the reason for this is that you can add a link to an editable image, which effectively means that the Forward to a Friend link is ignored.

I'm happy to add your vote to use editable images within <forwardtoafriend> tags and keep you posted on this one. In the interim, you will have to use a static image, I'm sorry to say.

Thanks so much for the prompt response. I removed the editable tag and label and it worked as expected.
