Posts are not in HTML, so adding just a little HTML fragment seems
weird. Are you maybe thinking about the EVM2003 web pages, not the
list archive?

I could stick in the CC URL as text, of course. I'm more curious about
what you think adding the URL actually adds to the release. I like the
Creative Commons project too... but does the URL do anything other than
say "yeah, we like the CC project"? If not, that seems like a side
issue that there's no point going into. The phrase "Public Domain" has
a known meaning, not one invented by CC.
