re: [MS MVP] remark
Right that was out of line and I apologize, I noticed I misread the post
after I posted it but there is no edit function so I was stuck with my
I'm really not trying to flame, I hate it when people make comments like
"that's not possible" without putting any info into how they came to that
conclusion. it's useless. at least show how you reached that conclusion.
you're missing the point a little... nuff said.
that being said I still maintain that your post wasn't helpful *at all*
saying I dont know the solution is not the same as saying *there is no
solution*, which is not true. There is a solution.
consider the following links:
<a class="activeClass" href="#section1?_url=test.html" target="_self"
>Example Usage passing value to function</a>
target="_self" >Example Usage with http://localhost
:// + onclick event handler</a>
<a href="test.html#section1" target="_self" >Internal Usage (# Named
<a href="test.html" target="_self" >Internal Usage (Link to this page:
test.html), method maintains Link:visited Color</a>
<a href="http://www.google.com" target="_blank" >External Link Usage,
method maintains Link:visited Color</a>
<a href="test.html" onclick="newWindow('test.html');return false;"
target="_self" >Self referencing link + onclick event handler, WORKS!!!!!!</a>
Using the last approach solves the visited link issue. I do have a useful
as well if the return false does not prevent the re-loading of the source
page which would certainly be an annoyance.
