(1)	Right now, as per Dyballa's suggestion, I use hyperref's  
implementation of \url: As I am editing heavily, the url keeps moving  
around, a bit here, a bit there and, at one point, Ivrii's suggestion  
did not work too well as the url would not break and half of it got  
lost beyond the right margin.

(2)	Right now, I have no idea of what I will be referring to in  
Wikipedia in the next few minutes and I must confess that I am not  
losing too much sleep on my book being "cluttered with long URL  
constructions". But then, of course, one of these days, once the text  
is essentially done, I will likely decide to relegate all of these  
URLs in a style sheet: My preamble which consist of just two lines


would then just have a third line:


Once again, grateful regards to all
