broken links

I noticed that the link I gave for the article about John Grimshaw and
snowdrops was broken in the version of the message I received.

That's because I (deliberately) sent the message as an HTML message, hoping
that when it was converted on the other end the link would not break. (I
first composed it as plain text on this end, but that did not allow an
unbroken link.)

I know of two ways of dealing with broken links.

One is to copy and paste the url into your browser's search line, fixing the
break as you paste. 

For those of us who use Microsoft Outlook, there is a simpler way: open the
message, click on reply, in the reply version of the message click on
options, and then change from plain text to HTML. That will automatically
repair the break, at which point you simply click on the url and go. 

What do others do?
