I think the user result would be the same whether the link appearance is handled in the HTML or the CSS, but maintenance is certainly easier and simpler by using CSS and not messing with the HTML. What if the corporate style for the image or its rendering changes? Would the person managing the web page really want to go through the HTML to make changes, rather than just change the style element in the CSS?

Why use a script at all? Just wrap the button IMG tag with a pair of link
