I notice it quite a lot and have always wondered how you do it

eg http://pressf1.co.nz shortened to pressf1 (but still hyperlinked)

Select the text you wish to hyperlink, then select this (http://www.imagef1.net.nz/files/pointer.JPG) button and insert your address.

You need to do more than just click the "Insert Link" button.
After you paste/type in your URL, it will give you some text along the lines of:
[ URL="http://pressf1.co.nz/"]http://pressf1.co.nz/[/URL ]

You need to change the part in between ] & [/URL] to the text you want displayed. In this example, change http://pressf1.co.nz/ to pressf1, like so:

[ URL="http://pressf1.co.nz/"]pressf1[/URL ] and it will end up like this:
pressf1 (http://pressf1.co.nz/)

If you read what I said a little more carefully this was already covered ;)

Actually, I could probably re-word what I said:
'Highlight the text you wish to hyperlink then...'

I know, I was being cheeky. I was testing out the above advice.
Didn't you notice my newfound ability to rename hyperlinks ;)
