    At some point last year ago or so Microsoft threatened to add a feature to
    IE called "Smart Tags." They wanted this because they felt that web pages
    just didn't have enough links on them already--they were "under-linked" is
    the phrase I believe they used. So IE would select words or phrases and turn
    them into active links, despite the fact that you hadn't made them. These
    links would take you to favored Microsoft sites. Suppose you had a page with
    the text:

    "Everyone ran to their windows to see what had made the big noise in the
    village square."

    IE might take the word "windows" in the sentence above and make it a link
    to, say, microsoft.com. even though you had no intention of making such a
    link when you made the page, and it makes no sense in the context.

    The links that IE would add via "Smart Tags" were reportedly to sites that
    had entered into a financial agreement with Microsoft to buy the right to
    have certain words link to their sites.

    This raised such a brouhaha that Microsoft backed down. I believe the
    feature is still in IE but is turned off by default.

    The meta tag you refer to prevents any "Smart Tags" from being imposed on
    your page.

    Actually, you have it backwards, Murray. You want mssmarttagsPREVENTparsing
    to be TRUE.

    <meta name="MSSmartTagsPreventParsing" content="true" />

    That *prevents* IE from inserting its own links to things it thinks the user
    might want to see into your page. For more info, see

    Hmmm... that meat must be a type of SPAM.

    Just when I think they've run out of things to do in the stupid and annoying
    dept. they do it again!
    Geez!
