Flash text links

Ive had this problem for a while, i usually solve it by making a box behind the text with the same color as the background. Well my problem is when you make a text link in flash MX it links ONLY the text. I woud like the border i draw around it to link to, …its quite pesky to try to click on just the text. Thanks ahead of time. Cya
