Not a good recommendation:  some browsers will put up a dialog box
whenever there's a reference from a secure page to a non-secure page,
including embedded references such as image URLs.  This leads to a
fairly infuriating experience as a user, as multiple dialog boxes are
put up to display one page of results.
