Hi Andrew, and! With IIS5.0, some sites deliberately use illegals to force a 404 error ASP page, which can then redirect based on the the failed URL. How would you find these URLs compared to normal language structure? Admittedly not a lot of IIS and ASP programmer know about this trick and its derivatives and very few will use the above format, but it is part of new hack to get higher hits on search engines for asp pages and also for response tracking/voting by giving each person a link to a resource that doesn't exist) .
