Spiders and "onClick" and "HREF" in one link

This is quite a random question. We\'re about to implement a change on our site which has involved the changing some links from "A HREF=\'blah.html\'" to "A HREF=\'sample.html\' onclick=\'sampleFunction()\'". sampleFunction() submits a form.

This provides a little additional functionality to those users who have JavaScript enabled, while still letting the non-JavaScript users browse the site.

Does anyone know if the Google, Yahoo spiders etc still follow the HREF if the "A" tag has a onclick event? Or will it ignore it because it can\'t guarantee its seeing the same content as JavaScript enabled users?

Thanks in advance, :-)
