    There's a few different ways people create links to javascript function, after some looking around here's what seems to be the better ways:

    CODE
    <a href="java script:{}" onclick="foo()">Call it</a>
    <a href="java script:;" onclick="foo()">Call it</a>
    <a href="java script:void(0);" onclick="foo()">Call it</a>

    <a href="#" onclick="foo(); return false">Call it</a>


    And many people will say to back it up with a server-side page or needs-JS page like:

    CODE
    <a href="jsrequired.html" onclick="foo(); return false">Call it</a>

    onClick is the most popular way to link to JavaScript calls, people sometimes link this way too..

    HTML:
    <a href='javascript:myFunc();'>Call myFunc</a>
