Hi, i have a page that display photos.
Each of photo will link to another page. I want to hide the link that appears at status bar.
I'm using this code :
//Hide status bar msg II script- by javascriptkit.com
//Visit JavaScript Kit (http://javascriptkit.com) for script
//Credit must stay intact for use
      
function hidestatus(){
      window.status=""
      return true
}
      
if (document.layers)
      document.captureEvents(Event.MOUSEOVER | Event.MOUSEOUT)
      
document.onmouseover=hidestatus;
document.onmouseout=hidestatus;

The code can work on Firefox, but it doesn't work on IE 7.
I read an article that mentions IE 7 already took out javascript window.status changes in order to prevent phishing/address spoofing. Is there any way to make the cod work on IE 7?
Can someone help me, pls? Thanks in advance.
