    Exclamation Steganography - hidden text

    I saw a recent discussion here regarding tools for detecting audio watermarking / hidden text.

    I saw a remarkable technique here. Copy/Paste the:
    Let's make a small font small
    text at the top of the page. You might be surprised.

    I am not sure whether this counts as steganography.

    Do you think such a technique might be used to deliver code?

    I don't think that this counts as steganography, it is a usual method for websites which want to advertise their contents. For example, you will see this technique being used in every article in the site.

    Not sure how it works, though. If the text to be copied (instead of the selected one) is clearly visible on the HTML code, then, clearly not. Not 100% sure in any case.

    Could be used to pass a message to the (obviously many (otherwise why not email them?)) persons you want to know and to avoid most of every-day users, though...

    EDIT: It is clearly visible in the HTML, though:
