If you look at the HTML directly, it says:

<a onclick="javascript:toggleMessage(1); return false;"
href="ajax/%3c4DF6734D-0402-4C2C-8D15-D6FE14265B0E_at_mail.utexas.edu%3e">Subversion
in 2010</a>

The "href" is shown in the browser window, but HTML events normally run
the onclick= first, and the "; return false;" means that the event is
processed and will not normally be dropped down to the <a> anchor to
process the href. Therefore, the "href" is displayed on mouse over, but
not normally accessed by a JavaScript-enabled browser.

Maybe the original poster has JavaScript disabled.

Cheers,
mark
