I pasted in the first post the link that appeared in a box when I clicked on the chain thingy. But this doesnt do what I want, which is to embed just a link, and not part of the posting. (Like the < a > tag syntax of html)
Let me try the < a > tag:
Do I have permission to use it in my earlier posting instead of the * ?
On my bike ride I decided that since it worked in this thread on
the www and worked in my email, the method is presumably kosher. I
have revised the text.
I have also added a photo, on the basis that, if I am allowed to
tell people off, they should at least know what I look like, so
they can put my mugshot up on the wall and throw darts at it. But
I do not like that photo – in common with almost every photo
taken of me in the past 30 years.
