Strange unidentifiable object

Hello to all,

I’ve recently started to modify a Website that I didn’t create (Developer left company) and all in all it’s going well, except for one little thing.

On any page where an item is displayed such as this:

In Internet Explorer only a strange object appears below the picture, I’ve highlighted in blue in picture below:

I’m guessing it’s some type of input or text field or element because the mouse changes to a text cursor when hovering over it. I can’t figure out what it is because there’s a whole lot of PHP going on and I’m not familiar enough with it to ascertain anything.

Anybody have a clue?

Thank you
