law, meet web..

The insanity of the teacher guilty in Norwich porn case news is beyond belief. One can make lots of obvious observations about the importance of browser security based on this enormous injustice. But let it also be a lesson to us that the law and the society in general still has a very shallow understanding of computers and the web.. The smallest details of browser UI (like when :visited styling is applied) can be misunderstood and have grave consequences. Is it possible to make a UI that can not be misunderstood even in the court room?
