What I meant is that in the SHR case, the text displayed is not the URL
but some random piece of text that should be highlighted as a button
(although in some cases it is the same text as the URL itself, SHR has
no idea whether that's the case or not).

We can do something in the Gnus case rendering non-HTML contents, where
the URL is highlighted as a button, because at that point we do display
something which we know is supposed to be interpreted by the user as a URL.
