Well, you can see the URL on the bottom of the screen when in Advanced
mode, anyway, and URLs are so long to read..  I'd like this rather to be
both - suppose there is news.gif image, with a link to some news stuff, so
it would be: 

[LINK: news - href-value_inserted_here]

Or maybe optionaly switch between this and [LINK: news].

Surely. But there are pages which show up as 




Best viewed with [LINK]. 

(I like the last line best. :-)

In these cases, the image name gives at least some information..
