How is this all being generated? JSP? PHP?

This sounds like something that would be handled much better on the server than as an after-thought on the client.

I don't use that library, but the correct solution is not create the hyperlinks in the first place when they are not appropriate.

Generate hyperlinks for lines which need hyperlinks. Generate something else for lines which don't need hyperlinks. Plain text seems like a good substitute to me, but it's up to you to choose something which works.

This is the javaScript cal i am using in my jsp




This is the javascript function which our framework is using. This logic will generate hyperlinks for all rows in a table.
Now, how can i change this code to remove hyperlink for some of the rows.
Please explain with code if possible.

I still think that's the wrong thing to do. Just have the code generate hyperlinks only for the rows that should have them. Don't generate hyperlinks for all rows and then go back and un-generate them for the rows which should not have had them in the first place.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
