Of course, my answer comes in the context of a set of CSS questions. More 
degradable ways range from a simple .gif to a table cell with background 
color (probably including setting margins to zero in the body tag). It is 
kind of an ambiguous question, isn't it. 

If I was actually asked to do this, my first question would be "Why? What 
is it gonna be used for?" That would probably determine the "correct" 

<tip type="javascript">
 Need an anchor for activating some DHTML in NS for an element that doesn't 
support onClick()? The easiest way I've found is to create a function 

function waste() {}

and use it in the href of the anchor

<a href="javascript:waste()">

don't forget to hide your status if you don't want your users seeing ugly 

I know there may be cleaner ways to do this, but this has NEVER broken on 
me (yet... knocks on head)
