In this question I asked about the appropriate label for viewing/editing an item in a list.
I settled on a different solution than any there given - that of using a link for the viewing/editing, and a button for the delete. The reason being that the link is more semantically correct - it will navigate you to the details of the item and there you can view, edit, etc.
However now I have another problem...the button seems more noticeable, and more prominent. I would like the link, which is the more frequently used action, to be more noticeable, enticing, and prominent. I want it to be the obvious first choice for a user.
When I have a link and button side by side, and the link is the more important action, how can I SHOW that it's the more important and frequent action?
