Preventing Evil

This page talks about Microsoft’s upcoming Smart Tag feature, where they will insert links into documents. Now, these things have to be enabled by the user, and sites can “opt-out”. If you don’t feel like reading the article to learn how to opt out, I will make it easy for you. Add this meta tag:

<meta name=”MSSmartTagsPreventParsing” content=”TRUE” />

  1. So if I understand it correctly, web page authors will have to add that meta tag to prevent IE from fouling the page up. Seems like the reverse would be better: “Add this tag to turn IE Smart Tags on.”

    Sucks for the millions of web pages out there.
