Conditional Link URL - Easy Question

Take a look at the following script.
A small block of links that will apear on various different pages.

The logic should be fairly simple to follow.

I need the link target addresses to vary according to the page or content that contains these links.

This might be based on URL?
It could also be based on some identifier or class contained in the surrounding content

Simpler the better - i.e, cSS. Javascrip if necessary.

Any suggestions ?


<table  border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0">
  <tr>
    <td><a href=" if current page = A, then link = B "><a href=" if current page = C, then link = D ">Text 1</a></a></td>
    <td><a href=" if current page = E, then link = F "><a href=" if current page = G, then link = H ">Text 2</a></a></td>
    <td><a href=" if current page = I, then link = J "><a href=" if current page = K, then link = L ">Text 2</a></a></td>
  </tr>
</table>
