Hi guys, I've encountered a problem and I would like some advice and information on it if possible

I have a couple of Anchor tags on my site surrounding images, they have the onClick event in them which runs a function, eg...

code:
<a href="#" onClick="myFunc();"><img src="image.jpg"></a>



Now this worls fine in all browsers except IE5 and Opera, does anyone have any clues as to why? I've done some searching but have found no news on it.

I've found that if I Change the image to be a button...

code:
<input type="image" onClick="myFunc();">



This works fine and I've got no problem using this method, hell it would probably work if I used...

code:
<a href="javascript:myFunc();"><img src="image.jpg"></a>



But I'm just interested in why my original method didn't work, any clues out there?

Blaise

if myFunc is doing anything with the location of the document, maybe even launching a new window, then the browser navigating to the top of the page might override your function. Try putting

code:
onclick="myFunc();return false;"


I'm at a loss otherwise...
