That does cause the URLs to be clickable, but so far I can't make
clicking them  do anything.  I have set browse-url to be
browse-url-firefox, so I would expect it to open a link that I click
in firefox, the way clicking on somthing that looks like a URL does
when I have a text email.  But it isn't, as far as I can see, doing
anything, although the text does change color when I click.

This is in Gnus 5.11 as run from emacs-snapshot in Ubuntu Hardy Heron.

If there happens to be a number of greater voices in the Concert than
your own, they will swallow you up; therefore in such a case, I would
recommend to you the resolution (tho' not the impudence) of a
discarded actor, who after he had been twice hissed off the stage,
mounted again, and with great assurance he thundered out these words:
"I will be heard".
