I got a link the other day - when I view source this is what I see:

<div id="edn_fur356_EventView_URLBlock">

<strong>URL</strong>: <span id="edn_fur356_EventView_URL" class="dowrap">

<a href="http://www.my-site.c....com</a></span>


Now all seems well - no nofollow - but I dont like the look of "EventView_URLBlock" - and when I copied and pasted the url from the client side html view and pasted into notepad it had ? embedded in the link like this


Any ideas?

Another way of asking this question is - does a bot see what we see on the page or does it actually scan what the <div> tag is telling to do?

Is this a non-link?

looks fine to me too.

Sometimes special characters (double spaces, line breaks and apostrophes being common candidates) are encoded in something proprietary or unusual and when you copy/paste from one program into another the special characters turn either invisible or into some other character - sounds like that is the cause of the question marks, but if you delete them it should all be fine.

Edit: just re-read the question - simply deleting the ?s would be fine if you were re-using the html, but this is not what you were asking - apologies for not paying proper attention :s

What does the CSS say (if anything) about the IDs edn_fur356_EventView_URLBlock and edn_fur356_EventView_URL?
