Lynx 2-8-5dev.6 gives `400 Bad Request':

  Your browser sent a request that this server could not understand.  
  Client sent malformed Host header  

  Apache/1.3.14 Server at Port 80  

Netscape 4.71 (IIRC) presents the document without comment.
Opera 5.0 warns as follows:

  Security warning: you are about to go to an address
  that contained a username before the servername:
  While this may be a valid address, this kind of address has been used
  to trick people into going to fake web pages
  that pretend to be from a well-known web-site
  & whose name is used as the username.
  If you press OK, the page will be loaded as requested
  & you will not be warned again for this username until you restart Opera.
  If you press Cancel, the page will not be fetched.

just what is this page?  surely, it's not a genuine M$ offering.
if it is a fake, the Opera response seems to be best.
