Description

The page referenced above, if logged in as uncertified user, results in a page
that has the hyperlink engulfing the buttons on the page. The button thus don't
work, as pressing them sends you to the hyperlink location. We just need to
close the <a> element before ending the token that presumably uses the generic
form. I suppose we could cheat and alter the generic form to throw in a </a>
before the buttons to end any extant hyperlinks if this is too burdensome. If
the </a> was extra, it would just get ignored.
