And here's what I'm talking about, the dead link. Try clicking that link and you'll notice that, instead of taking you to the index page, it does nothing at all.
For instance, try this link, which will open a new window, with a width of 300 pixels and a 450 pixels height, with no toolbars, no scrollbars and not resizable. Here's how it's done:
I advise you to write something in the href field though, as in older browsers, the link won't be displayed if you don't. I usually use the # symbol, but you can use anything, as the link itself is dead.
But that's not the only possibility, you can do virtually anything with this... If you open that window again, for instance, you'll see 3 "dead links" that call 3 different functions that I've coded!
One last thing, there are more events that you can "kill", like the onSubmit for forms, if you don't want a form do behave as it would, but instead do something else, like handling the form info and behave accordingly..
