if you display an uri in different color (or part of them in different 
color), my mom or dad may just think it is a newest fancy way to show 
url from web site, after they can show a differnet site specific icon 
next to the URL bar.  People not aware of the spoofing will never think 
that means a different URL, they will only think that is a fancy way to 
represent the SAME url the spoofer try to spoof.

Only people aware of such spoofing, such as you and me, will even pay 
attention to such 'style text' solution. So I think this is the best way 
to fool ourself as we have an solution, instead of trying find a real one.
