That 1098 is the page number for that link (no, my story is not 1000+ pages; this isn't even a story, it's just a test. I'm just testing a character name thing and it takes a bazillion links to work). Any particular reason this could be happening? There is no on-page scripting. I'll post my global script below the image of the issue.
Global script below. I have two extra buttons, and I've removed the borders, added a background image, and changed link colors. Otherwise, I haven't done anything else.
