Default Re: reading links?

well in my browser, Opera, (and in a few others) hovering your mouse over the link will result in the URL being displayed at the bottom right (for opera) corner of the screen. If it doesn't do that, you can always just right click on the link and click "copy link address" and then paste it onto a wordpad doc. I think there might be a plugin for firefox but I am not sure.
Does this help?
Also, Do you know how to read a URL?
