    I've moved this so I can answer properly without going off topic.

    When you type names such as Roger Thorne, Philip Sparke, or Philip Wilby you will get what is called an "auto-link" which will give you a little extra information. ;)

    It only works for certain things - which have to be set up. For instance if I type Spectrum then (hopefully!) the linker will link into some information about Gilbert Vinter's testpiece - even if you happen to be talking about the colours of the rainbow! Embouchure is another I can think of off the top of my head. (EDIT: well it would if I could spell it properly :rolleyes: )

    We added it as a useful feature to give a bit more information on certain things which might be commonly mentioned. Just like me though, its knowledge is limited! And it relies on John inputting the info into some wizardy gizmotron located in his back bedroom...;)

    Well it sounds like a good idea to me, it makes it easier to get certain information i suppose.

    So if you can think of some useful words we can highlight, together with some text to accompany this, I am more than happy to consider any suggestions to add to the auto link list.

    Fire away if you have any ideas.
