External links

Titles

PLEASE add a title to an external link by supplying a text after the URL separated by a space, preferably the official title of the site, or if no official title exists the clearest title you can come up with.

Most URLs are ugly and uninformative, so it is better to give an external link a meaningful title. For example,

is much more readable than

The "printable version" of a page displays all URLs in full, including those given a title, so no information is lost.
