Now you can shortcut linking to outside urls by using a http:// prefix in your bracketed links

  • []to produce a link like
  • [|killer new website that is the rage with kids these days] to produce a link like killer new website that is the rage with kids these days

    You can also link to books on using the isbn:// prefix

  • [isbn://1565922840|Learning Perl]to product a link like Learning Perl
