most html doesn't work on the forum software which is probably as well given this Forum Rule

Forums generally use BBcode and often disallow plain vanilla HTML. If those forums allow you to advertise in signatures you probably need to use BBcode.

The proper code for the bulk of it is [url=http://www.plus.net//][img width=468 height=60]http://portal.plus.net/images/referrals/adsl-broadband/super-fast/move-for-free-2mb.gif[/img][/url]

The link for the image you selected returns an error because you had a ' at the end and I have substituted the normal Plusnet page for the link
As I said earlier the sig breaks the forum rules and even though the image doesn't work as the link actually does so I hope you will remove it
