A good way to reduce overlong URLs: go here -

Thank you Stephen

At first, I thought Tinyurl was an Arthurian Castle

Thanks - I was wondering how that was done.

The down side is that you can't "read" the URL.

For example, if I'm looking for poems about rabbits, and someone suggests these sites:

www.bunnies-in-verse.com
www.harelinefracture.com
www.rabbitstew/recipe3.com

I can pretty much guess what I'm getting into.

Marian, I don't think it matters that much. I'd much rather see this:

Than this:

Marian, I have to admit it was disconterting for a while. Not knowing where you're going with the link. But you get used to it. It's like putting those little pointing things around a url for a hyperlink. Once you get used to it, it makes sense.
