Links and references to other parts of the Handbook

Jump to: navigation, search

If referring to another section, should it be in bold or italicised? (e.g "See Why OER? in the Introduction") and should these be hyperlinked for the benefit of online readers (i.e. not with ref tags).

In the Lessons Learned page I recommended putting in the link for convenience and also for the benefit of discovering broken references. Ktucker 17:23, 2 July 2008 (UTC)

I was wondering that earlier this week myself. I think something needs to be done. I hesitate to use italicization, because it's generally used for book titles. Bolding may be too distracting to the reader. But I'm not sure what to do in its place.

Originally, I hesitated linking to other sections, because I wasn't sure how much the community would be altering the structure of the handbook, naming, etc. I do agree that linking would be an excellent way of detecting broken references. Thanks for adding that to the lessons learned page.
