<a href> tags disappear when switching from "Text" view to "Visual" view of Page Editor

When editing a page, I make a clickable <div> surrounded by a <a href> tag. When someone else then edits the page but edits using the Visual tab, the links I had previously entered disappear. When I put the <a href> tags back in and update the page, just switching between the Visual and Text tabs in quick succession removes any and all <a href> tags from the code.

I have tried disabling wpautop with no effect.

Is there a solution to this, or will I have to replace all the <a href> tags every time someone else edits the page?
