Hi all...

If I write <A HREF="ó"></A>, the browser interprets it as
<A HREF="%C3%B3"></A>.. that only happens with HREF attribute. How can I avoid this?

Thanks in advance

it doesn't matter what you put in the href as long as you return false in the onclick, so you could put something more friendly:

<A href="Click Me!" onClick='location="ó";return false;'>click</a>

ofcourse, in this example, the onclick will fail if there is no page called "ó"
