    Smart Tags?

    Have these been buried completely and written off as a bad idea?

    I still have this line of code in many of my sites (in fact .php generated for everypage on most)

    Code:
    <meta name="MSSmartTagsPreventParsing" content="TRUE" />
    To slap the evil corporate about the chops for being so damn cheeky...... but is it still needed?

    Cheers,

    H

    Do you mean Micro$oft's "whoops smart tags are really good for linking to competitors sites... Damn we're not so smart now are we? So we'll drop them."

    Assuming you mean those SmartTags, they have basically been abandoned for that reason in the context of the web.

    Aha, good news indeed. I might save myself a few bytes per page bandwidth then

    Ya' know, if we all keep designing sites to coddle and circumvent the "features" of certain browsers, people using them'll never understand how bad their browser really is...
