Hi Philip,

Very interesting

That would be cool to have a bit more statistics about these

1. Would it be possible to extract the metaname GENERATOR of these  
pages containing the u. I have seen for example:

    <meta name="GENERATOR" content="Microsoft FrontPage 6.0">
    <meta name="GENERATOR" content="Microsoft FrontPage 4.0">
    <meta name="GENERATOR" content="Mozilla/4.61 [en] (Win98; I)  
[Netscape]">
    <meta name="generator" content="WordPress 2.2.1" />

2. What are the contextual constructs of u: nested and nesting? For  
example I have seen a page in your sample where it is used for spam  
but not only for spam.

    http://www.wordtree.com/
    <p>&nbsp; This ends the coupon part, but there are some other
       things to think about. To return to the beginning of this  
Wordtree
       website, click <a href="#top">here</a>
       <u style="display: none">
          <a href="http://www.i-mortgage-rates.com/">mortgage
          calculator mortgage rates</a>
       </u>:
    </p>

   The contextual construct for this one would be p/u/a
