egymam,
All I can say is that something is wrong, but you already figured that out :)

If you think the link is wrong, contact whoever gave you the link.
If you think you did something wrong in DW, give us something to debug.

Here is a few steps you can try to save some hair.

Take the URL for the link and paste it in a browser.
If it works then you know the error is on your site.

Anyway here is a the way you create an image link.

<a href="http://www.the_site_name.com" target="blank"><img src"image_location/image_file.jpg border="0"></a>

thanks guys

i tell you what i did, i copied the coded text link from the merchant as they instructed me and i went to the DW to paste it and the page in a design view ,i do not know if that is ok , and i tried to paste this link in the properties link in the bottom of the page and tried to write my own text on the web page , but it did not work either , do i have to edit the coded text link first , or do i have to change the page view on DW into code view andthen paste my link

Yep, paste it in in code view, not design view.
