You're correct about the first link not working though the link is valid. For some reason that entire website (http://www.itechtalk.com/) isn't loading. It was fine a few hours ago.
To summarise, the link explained how to disable Word's automatic activation of URL's (i.e. converting a path to a hyperlink, underline and blue rather than plain text).
Regarding bibliography links:
Again, you're correct. I was talking about URLs in the bibliography and had overlooked the fact that the article of the second link was in relation to in-text citation.
I've gone ahead and located five instances of
and replaced it with
Q1: Is the ":" redundant? i.e. should I have deleting it with "l"?
Yes, this removes the link but...
Q2: How do I remove the underline?
Q3: How do apply the angular brackets to the URL? (I've tried manually adding them Word's source manager but the link doesn't show as a result).
In case you're wondering why I'm being so particular, I'm simply trying to match the PLAIN TEXT Anglia format

What I'm trying to achieve:
I have the one Word document that I want to be able to output two copies of by tweaking the anglia.xsl file.
- First copy is for an electronic format e.g. PDF: In-text citations and bibliography are linked.
- Second copy is for print: In-text citations and bibliography are
I can achieve this with your answers to questions 2 and 3.
Questions 1, 4 and 5 are not essential.
Regarding in-text citation:
I have changed the value of <citation_as_link> to yes but...
Q4: Can you make any recommendations on how make this look like a conventional URL? (i.e. underlined and blue)
Q5: In your experience, is it considered better practice or convention to leave the in-text link looking like plain text?
