So I see what you're trying to do, but this has the effect of prettying
up the processed docs at the expense of making the plain-text version
harder to read. Somebody who wants to find one of these datasheets from
the plain-text version has to skip further down in the file, hoping that
they pick out the right one among a set of long, similar URLs.
Honestly, I think we may be better off leaving them as they are.
Failing that, the right thing to do is to keep the lines defining the
URL labels right next to where they are referenced.

See what I'm getting at?

Thanks,

jon
