    It differs depending on where you're trying to make links.

    HTML (webpages, some forums):
    Code:
    <a href="http://www.example.com/">Click Here</a>
    BBCode (most forums):
    Code:
    [URL=http://www.example.com/&#93;Click Here[/URL]
    MSN can't do it at all as far as I'm aware, or if it can you'll need to use their widget to do it, or paste RTF data. I haven't used the official client for a long time though, so that may have changed.

    When you start a post or when you click the "Go Advanced button" for a reply you get a "Link" button in the toolbar a small globe with a chain link click on that and type or paste the URL you wish to link to in the box which pops up.

    Sorry!
    I should have read your question more carefully.

    Well the first part you answered yourself -

    If you want to send a link thru msn you simply type or paste the url in the messanger - it will instantly become a clickable link by all in the chat, including yourself... even before you "send" it.

    BUT - they are only clickable by users that have the following box ticked

    msn-livemessanger -> tools -> Options -> Security ->
    "Allow Links in the Conversation Window"


    You need to be a bit clearer on what exactly the question is really in future please

    Little warning here, and to reinforce what nerd has said.... do NOT and I repeat DO NOT go anywhere near meatspin. You will be scarred for life.


    btw, www.tinyurl.com works well for that.
