How to retreive URLs from XML data island for display in HTML table

Can href= value be filled in by a datafld variable?

After reviewing the link object, data islands and anchors array,
there's something missing here. I would like to keep an XML file of
URLs and have them display as links in a table on an HTML page.

Ah...but they have to look and behave like links!

I'd be ok with faking them to look like links and responding to a
mouseclick if I could figure out how to pass the table row into the
script.

Thanks in advance,
John Lynker

I don't think you can bind to attributes.
Of course what you can do is use XML as the data store for your links
and use other means than data binding to create a HTML table, for
instance DOM scripting. That would work in a lot of more browsers that
XML data islands with data binding work with as that is IE/Win specific.
Or if you are looking at an IE solution which transforms your XML data
into properly structured HTML with real links you could use XSLT to
perform that transformation.

Howdy I've been given conflicting answers about search engines picking up urls like: http://mysite.com/index.php?var1=1&var2=2&var3=3 Do search engines pick up these urls? I've been considering converting a site of mine to PHP-Nuke, but if the individual modules aren't picked up in search engines I'm not going to do it. Thanks phpKid

I have a table which is bound to an Internet Explorer XML data island. I'm using ASP.NET's client-side validators for an input field in the table. The problem is that if the input fields are in a table that is bound to the island (such that the rows are dynamically generated by IE from the XML data island), the validators do not work. If...
