Cross-platform code (remove line breaks to test):
<a href="http://www.microsoft.com"; 

Works OK in MSIE 6.0/Win2003 SP1 fully patched, Mozilla 1.7.12, Opera 8.50.

In my Win2KSP4+, Mozilla 1.0.7 it doesn't work (well, OK, it _does_ 
"work" (in an odd sense) when you hit the "go back button" (Alt-
LeftArrow) after navigating to the MS site bny clicking the _non-
spoofed_ MS link, with the browser "redirecting" you to Google (where 
you weren't before) when going back -- most weird!).
