Oh really? How about trying this.... Go to Google and search "is my url safe":
http://www.google.com/search?q=is+my+url+safe

Now hover over that second link reportedly to faq.ssl.com and look at what 
your browser reports:
http://faq.ssl.com/article.aspx?id=10068

Now look at the page code or copy/paste the URL somewhere else... Where does 
that link really go?

So much for looking at what mouse-over shows....
