Were I to write a program to convert your notes to html, how
would I know whether you wanted your http://.... references
turned into links? Further, how would I know they were valid
references (e.g. what I typed above is invalid). And, if we're
going to do http links, how about "mailto:" email links?
.... IOW, I'm saying I can understand from a programming perspective
how it would be difficult to convert http references to html links,
.... especially how to be certain I wasn't creating problems rather
than useful links. Too much is left up to the creator of the source
notes ... the programmer would have to do syntax checking to verify
that the http URL was meaningful -- and then he would also have to
rely on all users of his software to understand how the links were
to be used in web creation, and for all of them to enter the URLs
with proper syntax.
I would like to see some sort of standard notation that we could
insert to indicate we wanted a particular http URL reference to
be converted to an html link .... maybe enclosing it in brackets
or something like that ???
