[Mimedefang] Looking for an example of obfuscated HTML

I think you are correct, Nels.  As I remember, it was just a link, given in
a post.  You had to visit the link with your browser, and then "view the
source" of the target web page, to see how convoluted the HTML was.

David, would you happen to know the link of which we speak?

Yeah, that was an example David provided a few months ago.  Can't 
remember if the example was included in his list posting, or if there 
was just a link to an example web page.

Either way, I'm sure glad David's on *our* side rather than the 
spammers. :-)
