[Spambayes] Table munging defeats SpamBayes

Here's a new one on me. I spotted just now when looking through my spam
corpus for "low scorers". The rendered version of the spam (In Outlook 2003
anyway) looks like this:

All Rx Products

Consultation at no cost
No embarassing M.D. visits
I want to know more <link>

Most of that text is broken up into tiny pieces and inserted into tables,
followed by a huge <a> block filled mostly with randomized English text but
also, at the end, containing the web site href and "I want to know more".

SpamBayes gobbles up all the text inside the <a> but doesn't spot the
contents of the table because each apparent token is only 1-3 characters

Fortunately the spammer scuppered s/h/itself a bit by including some spammy
text in the <a> block. That and my SpamAssassin/SpamCop mods pushed the
score up 50%, so it didn't escape entirely.
