killing smart tags

There has been a lot of talk around the web recently about Microsoft's new "Smart Tags", a feature built into the browser that ships with Windows XP that makes words on any html page get squiggly links, linking to Microsoft-selected services. Obviously, such a feature is evil, ugly, and doesn't belong on journal pages. There is, however, a solution...

You can turn the little buggers off by adding this meta tag to the <head> section of every page that is served:

<meta name="MSSmartTagsPreventParsing" content="TRUE">

So... does anyone want to see to it that these smart tags are killed for our site? It would be much appreciated!
