I can't find any express prohibition of:

<a href="javascript:myFunction()">

in HTML 4.01 or in XHTML 1.0.  The references for URL and URI date back to
1994 and 1995, and don't make reference of this technique.  Is this
officially discouraged in favor of the event attributes?  

I seem to think it is, but can't find a clear statement to that effect.
