On a web form, when I click on an anchor tag, is there a way I can respond to this event in the code behind, not of the page I am about to go to, but the page that has the anchor tag?

Set the anchor tag to runat="server"

then, in the code behind, work with the .ServerClick() event:

<html>
<a id="myAnchorTag" href="something" runat="server">Click me</a>
</html>

In the .cs:

In the OnInit or Page_Load method:

myAnchorTag.ServerClick() += new SomeEventHandler( object sender, EventArgs e );

Then, of course, you need the implement the event.
