I have a “glossary” page which is basically an alphabet across the top, with letters (each linking to a named anchor) and words (again, each as a named anchor) beneath their appropriate letter.
Now the odd part.
Let’s say I have a word “Regulation T” (named anchor is ‘regulation-t’) just a bog standard anchor – and a bunch of text explaining what Regulation T is, and a URL…just your ordinary common hyperlink…pointing outside the site. (in this case to the Federal Reserve site). The puzzling problem is that the hyperlink isn’t clickable! It doesn’t go anyplace, doesn’t show up in the browser status bar…nothing. It looks like a hyperlink sure enough, but won’t launch a new page.
If anyone wants to check out this baffling behavior, it can be seen here: http://www.dogshit.eu/glossary/#regulation-t
Sure would appreciate any suggestions. Flames would be OK too if it would help solve the problem! 😀
Regards & TIA,
