No. (short answer)

But ... (begin long answer) you could do <a href="javascript: alert('Please don't click on 
this link. To see the glossary entry, just pass the mouse over the keyword.')" 

I guess one could call it an error-trap. It's not the most elegant solution, but it works. 
Whatever you do, dont put <a href="" ... this will display a listing of the directory where 
the HTML code for that page is located.
