this no longer works unless your visitor has a very old browser.
Some people use onClick= this will cheat you out of the click through tracking if the visitor uses a right click and open link in a new tab.
onmousedown= works with the left and right mouse button.
Here is the code for your links.

A cloaked affilliate link:
a href="www.somename.com" onmousedown="this.href='"www.somename.com/?
