Increasing visibility of links

The visualization of a link/hyperlink in the diagrams
[[GOOGLE http://www.google.com]]
does not involve any different font, color or underlining for the string 'GOOGLE'.
It may be difficult to visualize when, as here, we are not displaying the website, but rather the reference 'GOOGLE' 

Would you rather agree to change the default to an HMTL-like format, with a blue font color and underlined?

Yes, you are probably right.

It's probably time now to change the default to the standard blue&underline format.

We will post here a beta with this change, so you will be able to test it.

You can try the following beta: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/13064071/plantuml.jar

We have also added a hyperlinkColor parameter if you want to change the hyperlink color.

@startuml
skinparam hyperlinkColor red
(*) --> "[[http://plantuml.com]]"
@enduml

 

Any feedback welcome!
