Handling links print v. WE

Rob -- One possibility is to implement a footnote template.

In the main body of the text a superscript number is inserted which links to a footnote list at the bottom of the page containing the full url -- which will print as text.

I see this as an interim solution -- because I'm hoping that the pediapress folk will build a feature to handle the printing of full urls as footnotes in the case of links during the parsing process. However, I don't know when this will be implemented and the OER handbook team need a solution by 30 June.

This will entail a little extra work to insert the footnotes -- but I think it could work. Perhaps there's a smart hack using the print specific version of a template -- but am not sure whether we can transclude for print output.
