Bizarre Links and Bloglines

Smylers has just pointed out to me that, for those of you reading this via Bloglines, all my URLs are screwy. Instead of saying things like, they’re just saying //

And although Mozilla, IE, and SharpReader Do The Right Thing here, Bloglines doesn’t. Of course, it’s hard to know what The Right Thing actually is here. When I said DTRT above, I really meant Do What I Mean (which of course is always The Right Thing!)
