D'uh. Sorry, of course.

I think you could argue that allowing javascript to change the status bar IS a security liability, as it is possible for me to mislead a visitor into thinking they'll go to one place, when actually they are linking to another. For example consider: <a href="reallybadsite.com" onmouseover="status='reallygoodsite.com';">
