You must perform the conversion yourself, displaying the URL both
as the href atttribute and body text of an <a> tag. Don't forget
to URL-encode it for use in the attribute, and HTML-encode it for
use in the body text.
Examples in Perl, PHP, Python, and JSP are available at:
Get the recipes distribution, check the apache/links and tomcat/mcb
directories for the examples.
Mmm, that's two book plugs in a day, I'd better cool off for a while. :-)
