Condidional <a href = ....>

I need to have an anchor tag that will be followed through depending upon a condition. I see to recall I can do something like <a href="somepage.html" onClick="return chk_link();">xxx</a>

If I don't want the link followed, the chk_link() Javascript will return false, otherwise true.

Does that work?

Thanks
