because he doen't want the link to do anything, and didn't care to follow it.
was thinking to use hash, but then what about the first visits....
if the link goes to where he already is, nothing will happen (was the theory).
i know it's unconventional, but my first two guesses didn't work.
rethinking about it, i bet some browsers will re-nav though if the link is an absolute url...
its still not working, so if you have any suggestions, please feel free to share.
onclick=" somefunction(); return false;"
i still don't know why it's following the links in the first place, so that's just a stab.
you can also style a span to look like an a tag and use it instead. that would work for sure.
