.SH LINKS
.SH NAKED URLS WITHIN TEXT, DEALING WITH URLS
-.br

urls found within text are marked up automatically. A url within text is
automatically hyperlinked to itself and by default decorated with angled
braces, unless they are contained within a code block (in which case they are
passed as normal text), or escaped by a preceding underscore (in which case the
decoration is omitted).
