Btw, if I understand what you are trying to do then you can do this much
more simple. I noticed that all the a tags with onclick have an href
attribute of '#'. To get all of these do something like:

soup.findAll('a', {'href':'#'})

Then use the attrmap eg attrMap['onclick'].split('\'')[1].

Put together that may look like the below.

for i in soup.findAll('a', {'href':'#'}):
    if 'toolbar=0' in i.attrMap['onclick']:
        print i.attrMap['onclick'].split('\'')[1]
