a Firefox/Netscape/NN 6 IE 4 Chrome/Safari/DOM 1  


The a object reflects the a element, regardless of whether the element is set up to be an anchor, link, or both. Early versions of Navigator and Internet Explorer treat this object only as a member of the links[] and/or anchors[] arrays of a document. Starting with IE 4 and Netscape 6, you can access the object through supported element object reference syntax (e.g., the document.all[] collection for IE or document.getElementById() for IE 5 and later and Netscape 6).
