    You can use $_SERVER['HTTP_REFERER'] for the href value but be aware that it cannot be "trusted." The user can manipulate the value.

    I'm not sure if that is of any concern in your case, but if it is just be aware that the referer data in $_SERVER is not reliable.

    It's usually a good idea to start out with this at the VERY TOP of your CSS: * {border:0;margin:0;padding:0;}
