Agreed. On a related note, I saw a report that some special URL type related to windows help could wipe your computer under XP (SP1 fixes this). Apparently an url with a winhelp specific schema could order the computer to write a file to any place you name on disk. Such as somewhere in the system directories... No, no link, and not confirmed. But wouldn't be surprised if it was true.

Only allowing the above (https?, ftp, mailto) would eliminate such as well.


You have moved into a dark place.
It is pitch black. You are likely to be eaten by a grue.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
