Ctrl-Click event lost on IE7 hyperlinks

The control-click event cannot be caught by Javascript on an anchor tag unless the anchor tag has a child element (e.g. SPAN or FONT).

I need to catch this event on user-entered data, hence I can't work around by inserting a child element myself.

(ppknote: This is a regression in IE7. IE 4-6 handle this correctly.)
