Vika, your links work now for me. :-) Faldage is right--don't worry about putting a color if you're posting a link. I know it is confusing--more than one new person (naming no names, but ) has thought that simply changing the font color created the link. Not so. I am not recalling when I said don't use html; possibly a bit of knowledge flashed into my brain momentarily, then vanished. I do recall advising folks to put the [ ]-with- url-inside-them at the beginning of a line, because if the link is long enough to be shoved to the next line, you'll end up with an extra http at the beginning, and the link won't work.
