Uh...well...since you put it that way, I don't know.

I can't remember a book I've proofed with an actual link in it. I still 
think I'd leave it alone unless you get information on this list that 
suggests you should strip it out.

How's that for a hazy response?

Bob, is that the case for volunteer submitted books, or just publisher
quality books?  I think I've noticed a difference in that the PQ books
do have hyperlinks that work, but the volunteer submitted books don't
have hyperlinks that work. Just working on memory here, so I could well
be mistaken. smile.
