One possible method, although restricted by document type, is to use
an iframe. Without borders readers wouldn't know the difference.

Yes, and that is why drive by malware uses iframe, because a user
usually misses an iframe, especially when it is 1 pixel.

There were a lot of asp pages using SQL server, whose developers did not
use best practices (mostly because they just did not know them), and
whose dbs were injected with javascript that created a drive-by iframe
that took the user to several malware sites. I know about this because
it happened to me until I locked down my application. Now, none of my
browsers enable iframe.
