  3. Put a full URL in the snippet body, such as http://www.smilesoftware.com/
  4. Control-click the link text and choose Make Link from the pop-up menu.

After you've made the link, you can replace the visible URL with other text. Just put your cursor in the active link text and make changes as you would with any other text.

Official Motorola Library

Official Motorola Library -- In TidBITS-322 we mentioned a PowerPC math library compiled from Motorola's PowerPC SDK. The library was later withdrawn due to licensing concerns and Motorola's intent to release their own version. Though it's a few weeks late, Motorola has indeed released LibMoto, which improves the performance of some floating point math functions on Power Macs. The shared library is available for free (a developers version is also available), although Motorola asks users to register online to download the library. If you don't do extensive number-crunching or graphics work on your Power Mac, you probably won't significant benefit from this library, but some users could see worthwhile performance improvements. I've seen unconfirmed reports of problems using LibMoto with the GeoPort Express Modem and some fax software (surprise!), so be sure to take normal precautions before installing this (or any) system software.
