#383: Use <button>, not links

 The "Copy from original"  and "Cancel" llnks are purely JavaScript-driven.
 Semantically, and for accessibility purposes, they should be marked up as
 <button>, even if they are then styled to look like plain links (though
 that's not recommended). They would then inherit the native behaviours of
 buttons, and default behaviour of links won't have to be prevented.

 See https://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/26504 for an equivalent ticket
 for WP with expanded reasoning and discussion.
