Banner linkbacks?

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Hello, I was told a couple years ago, that Google did not pick up
banners with anchors in them. ie) only send out a banner for Traffic,
not a backlink. Now, looking at the anchor text,

<a href="../homepage.html"><img src="images/f36.jpg" width="210"
height="33" border="0"></a>

It looks to me that Google would indeed index this. Can anyone tell me
anything about this.

If Google does indeed register the link in the banner, then can someone
tell me how to create a link to a second site that does not get
indexed. This is on the link page so I prefer not to use flash or
anything like that to spook away potential link backs.
