Hi, Everyone,

I would like to share with you an experience I had in sending a sentence on
BAD in one of my promotional e-mails.

I copied part of Wayne & Sharon's paragraph from the "Promoting Bad" page
in the wiki into the body of my e-mail as follows:

"....The Before and After Demo <http://www.w3.org/WAI/demos/bad/> (BAD) is
an updated set of related web pages that provide fully integrated examples
of accessibility at work.... "

When I sent the mail to a few personal contacts, I received replies from
some stating that the link was broken.  What happened, in fact, was that
the spam filter blocked the url as it contained the word "bad".  Further
investigation provided this message "*"Outlook Web Access has disabled this
link for your security.*"

In order to avoid the problem, I added the url of the link after the
wording as in the example below:

The "Before and After Demo <http://www.w3.org/WAI/demos/bad/> (BAD)" [
http://www.w3.org/WAI/demos/bad/ ] is an updated set of related web pages
that provide fully integrated examples of accessibility at work. "

Bon weekend,

Vicki


Best,

Vicki
