There is no such thing as a non-clickable link - if it is not clickable it is just plain text.

Is there a reason you can't just remove the <a> tags from around the text - or are you looking to modify the link after it is in page.

What is it you are wanting to do - or prevent from happening.

You might be able to add a transparent overlay.

Use the CSS Opacity property along with a positive z-index on a <div> that overlays the area with the 'disabled' link. Something like this might work:
HTML:
<div id="TransparentDiv"></div>

Open in new window

CSS: (I think this sample will 'disable' the entire page.)
#TransparentDiv
{
    display: block; 
    opacity: 0.0; 
    filter: alpha(opacity=0); 
    float:left; 
    position:fixed; 
    background-color: #FFFFFF;  
    width:100%; 
    height:100%; 
    z-index:3;
    margin-top: -20px;
    margin-bottom: -20px;
}

Open in new window

Toggle the display property from block to none to enable/disable the overlay.

Adding the overlay worked perfect.
Julian HansenCommented:
just be aware an overlay is dead simple to get rid of. Right click, Inspect Element, delete and it is gone.

One way of getting rid of the link is
Using jQuery
$(function() {
  $('a.tc_div_46231').attr({href: ''});
});

Open in new window


But without know what it is you want to do this might not be the right solution either.
