What do you call a link?
<a href="path/to/my/page.php" id="sayhi">THIS IS A LINK</a>
Or :
<img src="path/to/my/onepixel.php?param=1234" id="sayhi" />

I don't want to propose a NEW USELESS answer again

How do i click link inside iframe

You move your mouse over the link and depress the top of the mouse.

If the subtext of this question is, "How do I cause an event to occur when the client did not initiate the event," then I think you need to explain why you would be doing something like that (something the client did not expect, maybe?) and exactly what event you're trying to trigger.

You can do a lot of interesting stuff along these lines with jQuery.  The jQuery library is very powerful if you use it wisely.
