CSS Button onclick event href="#" onclick="

Ok this is really bugging me. How do you correctly call a procedure from the  href="#" onclick="

eg I want to call
Protected Sub ABC()
from the onclick event of a css button

I have tried
<a class="button" href="#" onclick="ABC();"><span>GO</span></a>

but this doesnt fire the event. I can get a normal button to run the procedure using the onclick event but really want to use the css button to do the same thing.

Thanks in advance

Why are you using href="#" ?
<title>Untitled Document</title>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
function ABC(url)
<a href="#" onClick="javascript:ABC('http://www.google.com');"><span>GO</span></a>

Thanks dosth but I think my problem is that I am trying to call a proc rather than a function. Should I write the Procedure as a function and call it? Why cant I call the Procedure. I am usung VB in a code behind file if that makes any difference.

Sorry but I am just an old VBA hack trying to get my head around .net
