Disabling Links

I have a client who wants me to replicate a site that I created, but as an introduction to the actual site. The items that will be available for sale on the previous site, he wants to have about 95% of it as un-clickable links that still appear on the page.

He wants folks to be able to access the rest of the content and even download it. This, of course, is so that he can give a sample of what they (hopefully) will go on to purchase as a whole.

I was thinking of just adding an Active column to the database and make the entire site's links inactive, but visible, and then he could select a handful to activate through the admin as he sees fit.
Are there any tools within Data Bridge that anyone could recommend to get me started on this or do I need to write some JavaScript that will make the inactive links not work.

I plan on using CSS to make those links greyed and with a line-through text-decoration, but how can I use MySQL and JavaScript (or just one or the other) Actually make the links appear and not be clickable or appear and be clickable based on the Active checkbox I am going to provide my client?

I may have confused or over-explained this, but I think if I could get a point in the right direction I could figure it out.
