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) .
