Hi, People,

Is it possible to have an "empty" or "dummy" <a href> ***without***
the browser jumping back up the page??

I have a hyperlink that doesn't point to another document, but is used
to call forth a modal window onClick (or is there another way, without
text or image links, of calling forth JavaScript on user activity??).
I would like to spare my visitors the inconvenience and visually
jarring effect of getting thrown back up to the top of the page!  =(
