  Yes, this is actually true.

  This is obviously false, however.

| OK, third-part link then.  I still don't see what you would *do*
| with such a link that you can't do using HTML as it stands.

  That's frankly not my problem, and you're not listening enough that
  I care to spend all the time it would take to  explain it to you.

| What happens?  How does this link get rendered?  What happens when
| you click on it?

  Sigh.  How do the "links" you already have in HTML get rendered?
  What happens when you "click" on them?  What, exactly, do you expect
  to be _different_?

  I don't have the patience for this.  Sorry.
