I believe there is need for a wiki-wide 'linking" style and see three currently in use:

  1. Link directly to the site mentioned using the name of the site as the hot link, e.g., "The Illinois Newspaper Project web page includes a ..."
  2. Describe the site, hit two carriage returns and add the text of the url, then hot-link the text of the URL, e.g., "The Illinois Newspaper Project web page can be found here:
         http://www.library.illinois.edu/inp/
  3. Mention the site and then put the words "web site" in parenthesis and hot link the words "web site", e.g., "The Illinois Newspaper Project (web site) includes a..."OR "The Illinois Newspaper Project web site  includes a..."

All three get the job done, but which one is best for this wiki?
