Who can figure this one out?

Hi all,
Ok, I have a MS Acess database.(I'm using Access cause I'm doing a small project and i'm a beginner in Jsp)
In the database is a table with 4 columns. I want one column to contain links so when I retrieve data from the table and put them in a HTML table, users will be able to click the links. I also have a page whereby a user can edit a the database table. This works by retrieving the data from the table and putting it in form fields on a web page so the user can edit the fields and update the database.
The links in the database table are stored as :
<a href ="url">link</a>
When this is retrieved and put in a html table it is displayed as a link, but the problem occurs when I retrieve the data to be put in the form fields. I just want the <a href ="url">link</a> to be displayed,but only the <a href is displayed and part of the link is displayed outside the form.
Strange stuff.
Anyone know a solution.
Thanks Rui

Right click on the browser's page - view-source and check what html is sent to browser. I think the html generated from server side is not proper.
