BTW, this looks like a VisualBasic virus, not an HTML virus.  A
good HTML virus would be cross-platform, HTML 4.0 compliant, Bobby
approved, and be able to infect Lynx, Opera, Netscape, MSIE,
pwWebSpeak, and more.

Just say no to non-validating, inaccessible viruses!  We need
WAI Accessibility Guidelines for Destructive Programs.
