[thelist] return false... but still scrolling

I have a simple image pallette which with JS alters the select drop down.

while this code is far from unobtrusive, the option to manually select 
the color from the drop down exists which makes this OK to use (the rest 
of the site is horridly coded by someone else anyway.....)

i'm using a simple:  <a href="#" onclick="setcolor('thecolorcode'); 
return false;">IMAGE</a>
for lack of a better idea.

this 'link' is below the fold on my resolution.  but when clicked, the 
page scrolls up to # (aka, the top) and also alters the URL to include 
the # in it.

I thought the return false stopped this from happening?   Am i missing 
something obvious?
