  Changes:
  2000/06/04 - Added the correct link to the GPL license
  2000/06/05 - Fixes to bugs reported by Davor Cengija <hide@address.com>
               (1) Links that look like {{UNIX}} were not being stripped
                   correctly
               (2) Crossreference terms sometimes spanned a line break
                   which looked real ugly/bad
               Thanks to Davor for reporting the bugs in this example
  2000/06/05 - Found another bug, some crossreferences are to URLs and
               not terms in the dictionaries, the makeLink() function has
               been fixed to account for that.
  2000/06/06 - Check for duplicates when creating the links, and modified
               the external URLs regex to recognize more protocols, as well
               as eliminate crossrefences to RFC's
  2000/06/07 - Stoyan Jekov <hide@address.com> has sharp eye, and 
               noticed that I forgot to close my HTML FORM element
