Internet Explorer / IE >> IE7 support for Javascript:functionCall()

Anyone know if javascript: pseudo-protocol calls such as;


<a href="javascript:doSomething()" ></a>


..will work in IE7?


It seems to be on some people's wish list to remove support for this;

http://www.hide-link.com/ ;q=ie7+pseudo-protocol&rnum=1#e6bc505e0871da1a
and it does seem like the Beta version treats this differnetly to IE6; In
IE7 it runs the script, but then opens a new window, in IE6 it runs the
script, but doesn't open a window


I can't find any mention of changes to this in any MS documentation. Its
pretty important as any changes are going to mean lots of code change for
existing apps that rely on this functionality.

Thanks
