Looking to target the a tag and remove its functionality, either remove the onclick or disable the link.

This is an override to html that I cant edit, so adding a class or id to the text will not work. How can I target the link using the mootools framework without add a class or id to the html.

Thanks for your help.


          <div id="hglink">
              <span id="linklabel"></span>
                <a href="javascript:;" onclick="toggleDiv();this.blur();return false;">
                    <span id="linktext">Enter Address</span>
                    <span id="hgzip"></span>
              </a>
          </div>

Check out this jsfiddle.

jQuery(document).ready(function() {
    $("button").click(function() {

        $("#hglink a").removeAttr("onclick");
        $("#hglink a").removeAttr("href");

    });
});
