Formatting Hyperlinks in Web Writing|
When displaying a URL, include the full address.
If we consistently use www.somesite.com.au instead of http://www.somesite.com.au, readers can become confused when suddenly confronted with a different type of address.
Addresses inside sites should use prose text instead of a URL.
