ie mark of the web documentation update

The Microsoft Internet Explorer weblog points to an improved documentation page covering the Mark of the Web (MOTW) security feature in IE6. There are also some good comments discussing why the MOTW model is backwards. The blog entry is here:

And here is a direct link to the MSDN Mark of the Web documentation:

Something I wasn’t aware of is the saved from url=(0014)about:internet MOTW. Apparently this is a valid URL and can be used as a generic domain. It forces IE to host the page in the Internet zone. The doc’s page explains in more detail.

Is it just me or does that name for the feature bring to mind the number 6?
