How do I hide HTML code for hyperlinks in blog commments? Here's the background:
I happily and easily include text hyperlinks all over the place in my website, using iWeb. I can even do this when creating a new entry in my blog. In all cases, the actual HTML code is hidden, and the hyperlinked text is, as usual, in a different color (to indicate that it's a link).
However, let's say someone leaves a comment to a blog entry, and I want to respond using the Comments box when I'm viewing the blog online, via Safari or IE or Firefox. And let's say I type a word that I want to also use as a hyperlink, that will take someone to another website.
So far, the only way I've discovered to add hyperlinks in a Comment is to actually type the HTML command right in the Comments text box (then add my name, URL, type in the secret image verification code and click "Add Comment").
When the new comment, with hyperlink, appears on the blog entry page, the hyperlink is active -- however, the entire HTML code also shows up. For example, here's what appears, on-screen, when I want someone to click "here" to get to my website landing page:
Click (a href="http://www.davidalanmoore.com")here(/a) to go to my homepage.
NOTE: I used parens instead of carats in the line, above, in order to show what actually happens in the real world... unfortunately, this forum is so well done that it actually read my carats, created a real hyperlink and hid the HTML -- which is what DOESN'T happen in the blog comments!
How do I hide everything but the word "here," without losing the hyperlink?
Thanks in advance!

Yes, the http:// part does make it become a hyperlink, as in the example I noted in my question. That is, the hyperlink works... it's just that all of the HTML code that makes it a link is also visible.
For example, take a look at the following sentence, that includes a hyperlink -- a hyperlink for which Apple's Discussion Forums automatically reads the HTML correctly, hides the code, and turns the text for the word "here" into a different-colored hyperlink:
"Click here to go to the comments page where I'm having the problem."
Now compare that hyperlink to the way a hyperlink actually appears in a "Comment." Click the word "here" in the sentence just above this one. You'll be sent to a blog entry on my website. If you look at the fourth comment on that page you'll see what iWeb does to a hyperlink: it creates link that works, but it also shows all the HTML code (e.g., "(a href="http//..... etc., etc.).
I'm trying to make that code invisible in the Comments, as it is invisible on these discussion boards. (See two paragraphs above: a link, but no visible HTML code.)
I'm not sure if I'm making sense... I'm just trying to be thorough so people don't accidentally waste their time answering a question I'm not asking. Bottom line, I don't want the HTML code visible, on-screen, when I create a hyperlink in a blog comment.
