I need a download link with the text "download" and an icon on the
My idea is to use an anchor and have the icon placed with CSS as a
background image.

Is this the correct approach?

Sure, you could do something like:

<a href="mydownloadthing.rar" title="Download in RAR format"
class="download">Download mydownloadthing (size)</a> {
padding-right:20px;},, {
background-image: url(download.png);
} {
background-image: url(smile.png);
} {
background-image: url(lightening.png);

It is not "the" correct approach but it is a perfectly sound one. There
are other sound approaches where, for example, you want the double
whammy of making both text and image links, arguably quite useful for
many users.
