Perlmonks tags have a unique syntax for abbreviating URLs. I get plenty of messages from people informing me that I should switch:
to something like :
but I cannot remember the right syntax. And I dont enjoy having to remember yet another HTML shorthand: I already have Markdown, Asciidoc, GoogleCode, MoinMoin, reStructuredText and more to confuse me.
So instead of telling us what to put there, it should be an easy parse to transform it.
