Remove anchor

I have anchored a link. Once the link is clicked the request goes to the server. During this time, if we click the link, data gets saved multiple times. I need to avoid this duplication. Is there any possibility to remove the anchor from the link once it is clicked to plain text using Javascript?

Ok, if you want a simple thing, than pick one of those:



there is 2 problems related to that:
1. Your page might have more than one link on it.
2. If you disabled a link, and user pressed "Stop", the link is disabled, and page is not reloaded.

So, in my code I used more generic approach - after link is clicked, I open a transparent DIV on top of the page. Here is the code I used. It was ment for IE 5.5+, but it should be very simple to port the code for any browser that supports DOM.

Note "spacer.gif" mentioned in the code below is 1px transparent image
