Hehe... just a funny smell and people panick? hmm

But I wondered why I couldn't follow that link. Cause it's NOT a link, it's just blue underlined text.

Here's a real one for those who want to have a look: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/london/7025782.stm

I'm wondering too, because I've just read about Nam Prik Poo by following Robin's 'blue underlined text'.

Considering the case that opened yesterday at the Old Bailey, I should have thought the smell was Scotland Yard's smoke screen. But how on earth did anyone notice it in Soho?

You're welcome...not sure why it was problematic but it took me a couple of tries to get something that worked...

That's because I fixed it...it wasn't really a link and the only way that it worked was to type text and then embed the link...
