[thelist] IE5 with href and onclick problem?

Hi there,

just run through some testing, and discovered some strange behavior  
with IE5.

Until now everything worked well when I used the following command:

	<a href="#" onclick="sendForm('23');" class="whitearrowright">next</a>

But IE5 didn't seem to accept the "onclick" event for the link. It  
does work like this:

	<a href="javascript: sendForm('23');" class="whitearrowright">next</a>

I guess this is because the onlick event for the a-tag hasn't been  
implemented in that version of the browser. Or am I doing something  

Thanks for any hints.
