Having data table representing list of items where large clickable area is  
useful - i.e. inbox in a webmail, list of contacts, forum threads listing,  

I've ran into this problem many times and seen many questions about this  
on forums/usenet.

My current solution is:
<tr onclick="this.getElementsByTagName('a')[0].click()">

Another situation where I wanted href on any element was advertisement:

<div href="/buy">
<p>My product is:</p>
<li>And soo semantic</li>
