Apropos of nothing in particular...

It would be nice if WWW browsers gave you the option of including the 
URLs of hyperlinks in the saved versions of HTML documents (perhaps 
some do already?).  For instance, an easy way of doing this would be 
for

  <A HREF="http://www.acme.com/">Acme Widgets, Inc</A>

to become

  Acme Widgets, Inc <URL:http://www.acme.com/>

in a saved (say) text or PostScript version of the document.  There 
are probably quite a few more, and fancier, ways of doing this - like 
footnotes, or an automagically generated list of references at the 
end of the document ?

Just a thought :-)

Cheerio,

Martin
