Validation and onclick events.

This statement throws up several errors:
<a onmouseover="return hs()" href="javascript:" onclick="submitform()">Submit</a>

I get one for incomplete href and another for using both href and onclick. I guess I've always programmed that way since it wouldn't validate in the past. Using href="" throws another error so that's not an option.

Ideas?

If you want to use that construct the way it is (and not change it), then the best thing to do would probably be to just disable those validator messages by right-clicking on them in the editor and disabling them.

I haven't tested this but another option may be to change href="javascript:" to href="javascript:return" to eliminate one of the messages (the one that's an error).

I've made it (in the next BETA) so when you disable this message:
Incomplete "href" value "javascript:".

Then it won't disable the messages for other incomplete values... only for "javascript:", so you might want to wait for the next BETA to disable that message.

If you disable it now, then it will disable all messages of this type:
Incomplete "XXX" value "XXX".

I just test it and see what breaks. I was just picking your brain. :wink:
