Unfortunately, this does not seem to work on Netscape 4.7 under Linux
(which is what I use). I've now tried to combine <font> and <pre>, but
I have no idea how this will look on other browsers than NS 4.7 (Linux)
and Mozilla (where it looks fairly sensible except for the large amount
of whitespace around the courier).

Usually, hyperlinked stuff is also colored. I experimented with other
forms of emphasis (like <i></i> and <b></b>) and thought that in this
particular case, underlining was most appropriate.

Kudos to Thomas Bader for the colours :-)
