IE Hover bug. Fix without hash (pound sign) in href?

IE only allows the hover property on anchor (<a href..>) tags.

The problem with the anchor tags is that they need a value in the "href" attribute.

Historically this is set to "#", which is essentially a "do nothing" link.

My problem is that the page jumps up as the user clicks on that link. I don't want that, as the link just activates an AJAX effect on the page.

I also tried setting the href to simply "javascript:;" to see if that would work, but nothing.

Any ideas for a solution to this?

Oh, and I also tried setting the onclick attribute to "javascript:return false;" which didn't help either.

Plus I tried an anchor tag that didn't have a href, but just an "id". The hover tag didn't work at all then.

Damn, just needed me to remove the "javascript:" from the onclick.

Thanks :)
