This is the simple way to do this.



use onclick event instead of "onklick"

I am not sure if there is another way to disable the link.
The only way i know is to disable the link, you need to add an onclick and return false.

This may not be the most efficient way of doing it, but put your link inside a <div> tag, and then create a function to change the innerHTML of that tag.

You can short-circuit the event in a number of way (Saif showed you one) and can use CSS to make it appear "grayed out", if that's what you mean.
