In CSS can you use the code that makes a border around the text,  so
as well as the actual visible link text there is a border you can't
see round the side, if you use a:hover then you can change the link
text too,  so it changes colour when in the right place.

https://stackoverflow.com/questions/2570972/css-font-border

basically increase the area where the mouse changes from a pointer to
a text select thing.
