Anyone know how to do alt text for urls on here?

Any way of making a link superimposed over other text? I mean like "Click here", and you'd click there to take you to the link. HTML isn't possible (it wouldn't like the angled brackets anyhow), but a lot of the smiley and emphasis code on here is similar to BBS or forum code, where you'd put (url=blablablah)Click here(/url). Only with square brackets. Anyone know the correct syntax, or if there even is one?

I don't think too that this is possible unless they(myLot) add support for it, like handling links and emoticons. I'm sure you've tried the forum code [url=]My Link[/url] and it didn't work. The text area we type in is simply in plain text that goes to mylot parser and any thing that she is not aware off will be interpreted as text. I've tried to force the bracket to appear and that is by using the &*lt*;* and &*gt*; (html's special characters) but still did not work.

Yeah, that was one of the first things I tried. At least they let us put links at all; some sites (I'm looking at you, Helium) don't even allow anything but plaintext. No links, no italics...
