Where else would the page go? If you link to a new page, that new page should start at the top. If you are talking about an anchor link tag being used for a javascript action on a page without loading a new page, something like so:


<a href="#" onclick="doSomething();">Do Something</a>

Do it like this:


<a href="#" onclick="doSomething();return false;">Do Something</a>

But certain free hosts, like Geocities will sometimes still reload the page, then you can do this:


<span onclick="doSomething();">Do Something</span>

And, if you like, the span can be styled to look like a link:


<span onclick="doSomething();"
style="color:blue;cursor:pointer;text-decoration:underline;">Do Something</span>

That is actually the preferred method for doing javascript actions on a page anyway.

If you are talking about something else, please explain it better, and:

Please post a link to the page on your site that contains the problematic code so we can check it out.

That's a big page, what link(s) are you talking about? And, what would you like them to do that they are not currently doing?


If you are talking about something else, please explain it better . . .

My time here is limited, please do me the favor of focusing the question.
