I need a way to disable the status bar and keep it from displaying page information.  I have tried several combinations of onmouseovers, onloads, and onclicks in various places in the html source.  Nothing seems to work.  Any help?

This is kludgy, but it might work for you:

<HTML>
<HEAD>
<SCRIPT language='javascript'>
<!-- //

function clearstatus()
{
   top.status="";
   setTimeout("clearstatus()",10);  // wait 10 milliseconds and re-clear (adjust if necessary)
}

clearstatus();

// -->
</script>
</head>

<BODY>

</body>
</html>

<BODY onload="window.defaultStatus='My page'">
<a href="file1" onmouseover="window.status='hello'">hello</a>
<a href="file2"><img src="hello.gif" onmouseover="window.status='image'"></a>
</body>
