Hi Elle,

It might sound silly but I first found out about MS Smart Tags
yesterday. I found an article on ALA about them from 2001.
Just wanted to ask, does anyone know what happened with them since?
And would the meta tag: <meta name="MSSmartTagsPreventParsing"
content="true" /> work? or is it still necessary?

Even MS eventually had to accept it was a bad idea and they removed it
before releasing IE6. From
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/835564/en-gb "The most contentious
part of IE6, Smart Tags, was removed just prior to its release."

As far as I know they didn't sneak it back in later, either; so the
tag shouldn't be necessary :)
