".....all active/hot links are duly displayed in the status bar."

One of our favorite visitors just walked in, a long time expert in all kinds of software and algorithm. The strip across the top in Safari is apparently called "bookmarks" so therein lies all the confusion abut what's meant by a "hot link"

tsu agin my gratitude for your incredible patience

I omitted no step. I did not use the fancy editor because I didn't need one, plus I forgot to mention that you should breath occsionally or might asphyxiate.

e.g., many of the external links given in wikipedia articles have a text title rather than a URL address for the hot links.

Those external links in wikipedia also have a cute little icon that let's you know that they'll whisk you offsite. It's to the right of the hyperlink, superscripted, and is basically a little square box with an arrow pointing to the upper right-hand corner.

If you listen you can hear the pistol being fired when Dahil taxes this guy's patience and he shoots himself rather like an animal in a spring trap will chew its leg off to get free. As for "hot links" everybody knows those the second type of serving one orders in a two- or three-way combo of ribs.

Thank you for misusing the word algorithm again before the year is over. Too bad you couldn't wait until tomorrow when you could have ticked me off on my birthday. You are a natural treasure of huge annoyances. Also, you forgot the pluralizing -s. Of course, knowing how your sick little troll brain works, you probably did that on purpose to try to drag some innocent peevologist into the flame war.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY to you then. And I know it is a presumptuous request/proposition, but couldn't there at least be a temporary banishment of the word LINK tired An Urly hibernation?
