what's the reasoning for that?  yes, the content originated as an email, but
you're viewing it as a webpage which means the scripting must adhere to
whichever security zone/level you have set for that site, unlike email which
can execute the script in the local zone (unless explicitly set to
restricted, the recommended practice), a zone almost devoid of restrictions.
