Hello, please bare with me on this one, I have no idea about xml.

I have a site that wants to exchange links with me and I think it's xml.

I want to check that they have put up a legitimate link to our site but I can't understand their page's code.

At the point where my link logo appears this is what it says...

<td width=275 height=166 style='vertical-align:top'><![endif]>
<div v:shape="_x0000_s1599" style='padding:2.85pt 2.85pt 2.85pt 2.85pt'
<p class=MsoAccentText><span style='language:EN'>Web site or page name 2</span></p>
<p class=MsoBodyText3><span style='language:EN'>Select the Web site or page name above and link it to a Web address (URL). Describe the site and explain why the site is useful to your reader.</span></p>
<p class=MsoBodyText3><span style='font-family:"Trebuchet MS";color:white;
language:EN'>MY COMPANY NAME</span></p>
<p class=MsoBodyText3><span style='font-family:"Trebuchet MS";color:white;
language:EN'>WHAT MY COMPANY DOES</span></p>

then further down the page it says:

id="_x0000_s2412" href="http://mywebsite/" style='position:absolute;

and then:

href="http://mywebsite/"><img border=0 width=96 height=32
src=image3801.jpg v:shapes="_x0000_s2412"></a>

All I asked for is a simple piece of html to be pasted into their site:

<a href="http://MYWEBSITE"><img src="http://MYIMAGE.jpg" width="150" height="50" border="0" alt="MY-ALT-TAG"></a>

can this be done? Or do I have to learn xml to check my reciprocal links?

It is not xml. It looks like they created their page in Microsoft Word and then saved it as html.
