Word Processors and URIs

Why is it that word processors (NeoOffice in my case, but Microsoft Word does it too) automagically turn URIs into clickable links? Maybe it’s because I’m a strange user, but very close to all of my word processor use ends up being printed when it’s done. And, well, clickable links aren’t worth much on paper. I just don’t see the incentive to do it (other than it being, admittedly, a quite logical behaviour for a computer program), when you’re dealing with stuff that winds up being printed.

This is Simply Jonathan, a blog written by Jonathan Holst. It's mostly about technical topics (and mainly the Web at that), but an occasional post on clothing, sports, and general personal life topics can be found.

Jonathan Holst is a programmer, language enthusiast, sports fan, and appreciator of good design, living in Copenhagen, Denmark, Europe. He is also someone pretentious enough to call himself the 'author' of a blog. And talk about himself in the third person.
