I was unaware of how Neil had implemented his home-page option until I  
looked at it just now. The email address is usually attached to a name  
in the author, comment, or formula fields. The home-page link however  
is *divorced* from the name and placed in the "links" field: Hence the  
confusion as to how that link might relate to the sequence. Wouldn't  
it be possible (and better) to hot-link the home-page (without  
explanation) right to the person's name (deleting the mentions in the  
"links" field)?
