I would like to get a few comments about the various methods of
triggering a page load via JS. Most of you folks seem to have
settled upon using the above technique:
I found that in some of the latter Beta versions of Netscape's 2.0 browser
the loading of pages was not actually triggered by the setting of the href.
I had to use the heretofore unexpounded-upon-in-the-docs "assign" method:
Anyone know or have a feeling about whether both will be acceptable
techniques in the "long-run"?
Seems to me there ought to be a way to set the href without actually
triggering a loading of the page...hence, I assumed, the .href=""
capability provided for that need.
