I wish Thunderbird could understand the uuencode inline (non-attachment)

WAI web accessibility rules/guidelines say that having "click here"
links are bad for a variety of reasons. So something like this would be

     1. Download releases from SourceForge.

They also say that no two links should have the same text. So if there
is another "Download" link in the page on might have to do this:

     1. Download Boost releases from SourceForge.

And equivalently (I haven't see the real HTML so this is AFAIK):

    * You can also download current snapshots of work-in-progress from
      <a href="...">Boost's CVS repository</a>.
