Hi Joe,

A quick response to one question. I hope to respond in greater detail to 
the rest of your email later.

There is a way. See, for example, the Cookbook page. That page has the 
following link (in raw wiki), which I think is an example of what you're 
trying to do:

[:Cookbook/Pyrex_and_NumPy: Pyrex and NumPy]

That should let you link anything within the wiki without reverting to absolute URLs. Let's keep our links that way so we don't have headaches when the URL changes.

Not easily, so let's do it like above.

Cheers!
