How do I make a menu entry that's just plain text, not a link?

My kludge workaround is linking to "/", but I'd prefer no link at all.

You should start accepting answers for your Qs, before expecting someone to answer this Q (33% is normally a draw back for most people). – kaiser May 9 '11 at 0:29

If this is for a dynamic menu you can use a 'Custom Links' and use a # for the URL then click add to menu.

Once it's in the menu, remove the # from the URL in the menu and save the menu.

It'll then be a text only no link item. (you can then add sub menu's that are linked) which is what I use this method for.
