	[DJW:]  Rather easy to decode, as many spammers have
	found to their cost, and likely to be blocked by
	HTTP proxies.  Also, this is as good a URL as the
	more conventional one, to the extent that it does work.

	D:\WINNT\system32>tracert 002207200443

	Tracing route to web5.w3.org [18.29.1.35]

	(still off topic)
