<a href="#" onMouseover="windows.status="";"> May do what you want, but if
they care what the url is then they can right click and view properties
anyway to get it (or click the link)

Your code fails because you have a quote conflict, and because you don't
return true.

Additionally, it fails if JavaScript is off, or if they look at the
source. It is also often considered bad practice to change the status
bar text for links, though I personally don't think it's always a bad
thing depending on how it's done.

You enjoy annoying your users? Some people REALLY hate that.

Some of us have browsers that don't let you mess with our status bar.

Any code you get will be nullified by Netscape or Mozilla with the
settings set to not let you modify our status bar.
