That is a good idea, but I think we should probably be bolder.

/usr/bin/<blink><u><b>ST</b></u></blink>
/usr/bin/<blink><u><b>SSELP</b></u></blink>
/usr/bin/<blink><u><b>SURF</b></u></blink>
/usr/bin/<blink><u><b>DWM</b></u></blink>

Of course we'd have to patch <blink><u><b>ST</b></u></blink> to
parse XHTML, but frankly it's embarassing we haven't done that yet.
