Description:
Although by default Mediawiki hides inlined URLs for external links (http://...), this is accomplished with CSS and does not work in browsers with no CSS support. Since lengthy URLs may break page rendering in unpredictable ways -- which cannot be mitigated through wikicode -- it would be helpful to have an option to entirely prevent URLs from appearing in the rendered HTML.

In 1.5 the expanded URL is *added* in CSS on the printable style, so you won't
see it by accident.

Column Prototype
This is a very early prototype of a persistent column. It is not expected to work yet, and leaving it open will activate other new features which will break things. Press "\" (backslash) on your keyboard to close it now.
