Well here's the trick... when you paste a url in, select it and apply the "Insert Hyperlink" button but then edit the line as shown below... I've put curlies in instead of the square brackets so it doesn't activate:

1. Paste....

http://arduino.cc/en/Reference/HomePage

2. Select and apply "Insert Hyperlink" (curlies are really square):

{url}http://arduino.cc/en/Reference/HomePage{/url}

3. Then edit your text in... shown blue below: note the = sign replaces first closing bracket and the url is followed by the replacement closing bracket... your text goes after that:

{url=http://arduino.cc/en/Reference/HomePage}display text goes here{/url}

Thusly....

Blah blah blah blah blah blah

Well CR, the beauty of Wikipedia is that you can make an entry for "Voltacity" and Voila!, there is such a word... Failing that, Urban Dictionary

Maybe as there is no limit to voltacity it makes no sense to define it ????

Is that true?- doesn't insulation break down at a voltage not a current? If I'm right, then voltacity could be a measure of insulation  8)
