The anchor element is required. If you don't want it to through you to
the top of the page when clicked set the href to link to the id of its
submenu. So the url for that would be something like: #[submenuid]
> I know I must be missing something obvious here but I need anchor-less
> parent menu items because in IE7 (and possibly 6) the script generates
> an anchor for my menu item and places a hash symbol into the href
> attribute which, when clicked throws you to the top of the page.
