Button link works in Chrome and Firefox, not IE

I am using a button as in the following example:

<a href=http://www.google.com/ target=blank><button type="button" value="img src=http://a.fsdn.com/sd/topics/google_64.png"><img src=http://a.fsdn.com/sd/topics/google_64.png></button></a>

This works great in Chrome and Firefox, but in IE a single click produces no result. I can right-click and choose "Open Link" and then it works, but why won't it work normally?
