Yeap I have done this too.
In the homepage Heading there was a 5 pointed * included in the name. if you
clicked on this star it launched a .avi file of a clown being lauched out of
a canon and going straight up the unknown of a horse.

Subject: Anyone Hide Easter Eggs in Docs?
I'm just wondering if any of you hide "easter eggs" in your documentation?
I've been in this business *forever*, and I know that hiding funny stuff in
technical documents goes back at least to the '60's. Someone showed me
a technical illustration of some of the superstructure (is that the right
on a Navy destroyer, and if you looked closely you could see some underwear
flying from a flag pole.
I confess to doing this on occasion, just to keep myself amused, and I'm
wondering how many others will fess up. Besides, if anyone has some good
ideas to share .................
