Some of you may have seen the recent blog post
about those government websites which link to Adobe's PDF reader
which is also discussed at

I'm pretty sure that links are advertising.  Lots of businesses
would love an main-body link from .gov.uk and would probably pay
for them.  Heck, I get approaches offering to buy links on much
less attractive sites that the co-op maintaines.

However, does anyone know the law about advertising on ukgov
websites?  Are those adverts legal in the UK?

Thanks for any info,
