Yes , but it is tricky. I do it on document level as otherwise you have to do it for every link element and that takes time.

$oIE.document.parentwindow.eval('var Sometest')
    $script = 'function whichElement(e){Sometest=e.srcElement.attributes("href").value;};whichElement(event);'
    _IEHeadInsertEventScript ($oIE,"document","onclick", "return false;")
    _IEHeadInsertEventScript ($oIE,"document","onmousedown", $script)
    $oDoc=_IETagNameGetCollection ($oIE, "body",0)

Func _Evt_onclick()
