LWC, I'm not sure if your use of templates for links really improves things. IMHO, it only makes things harder to read. As in "... we will be adopting jQuery as our ...". What's wrong with having "jQuery" as a link? I can guess where the link goes to and if I don't want to follow it, I can easily ignore it. But with your template, it now reads "... jQuery (Wikipedia entry) as our ...", which is much harder to read and clutters the sentence with information that I don't need. -- Dirk 19:06, 7 March 2010 (UTC)

Actually, that one is not a template but just a regular wiki-link. As for the templates, you can just change them to look like what you want. But the bottom line is that I think users deserve to know where they'll be going before clicking external links. This full disclosure is a matter of taste, I guess. If it was Wikipedia, we could do a vote. :-) -LWC 19:10, 7 March 2010 (UTC)
