No Twiggy... you don't HAVE to. Only if it's a long url that stretches the page out wide.

Thanks Silver. I just quickly read through the rules trying to find it too. For those of us with older eyes, though, it's much harder to read the link in the little area on the bottom of the browser when it's formatted like a word in the message than it is to just see the link in the post. And call me paranoid, but I never click on a link until I know where it's going.

You can also view a link location by right clicking the link and selecting "Properties". That's how I sometime check links.

OR, if you just hover your mouse over the link/word, the target will show on the bottom left bar of your window!

I know HOW to get around it. My only point is that it's easier to see what the link is if it's not "hidden" in a word. I don't always have my reading glasses on. You can do it however you want. I was just asking if it were required to be that way since it was changed in a user's post and since I choose not to do it that way unless it will make the page scroll I didn't want to be violating any rules.

No rules as far as I know...I guess we mods always THINK we're doing someone a favor!
