I think you're completely missing the point here. Some users do not use
a mouse with their Web browser. Some Web browsers are not capable of
handling mouse input. Some browsing situations use the mouse only for
copying and pasting text, not moving a pointer.
"Click here" looks *really* stupid printed out.
"Click here" sounds *really* stupid read aloud.
"Click here" is capable of *really* confusing users in those browsing
situations I mentioned above.
