I believe there is need for a wiki-wide 'linking" style and see three currently in use:
#Link directly to the site mentioned using the name of the site as the hot link, e.g., "[http://www.library.illinois.edu/inp/ The Illinois Newspaper Project] web page includes a ..."
#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: <br>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; [http://www.library.illinois.edu/inp/ http://www.library.illinois.edu/inp/]
#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 ([http://www.library.illinois.edu/inp/ web site]) includes a..."OR&nbsp;"The Illinois Newspaper Project [http://www.library.illinois.edu/inp/ <sup>web site</sup>]&nbsp; includes a..."<sup></sup>
All three get the job done, but which one is best for this wiki?<br>
