Do Nothing Link


Have you ever needed an "do nothing link" maybe as a menu placeholder for content not yet ready, or in order to keep a design element as a link (for styling or hover action purposes)?  Sure you can you href="#" but that causes a post-back and may change your scroll position in long pages.  This simple yet effective approach causes none of those problems, avoids the dreaded "Error on Page" message and keeps distracting status bar text to a minimum.
