Minor addition to FAQ 67

FAQ 67 (how do I add a link?) says "You can also use the Rich Text feature to create links in journal entries without using HTML" but it doesn't say how. The Insert Link button isn't really intuitive. It works fine if you type the link text and select it before clicking the Insert Link button; this is the intended way to use it. However, there are people that just click the Insert Link button and are confused as to why it "doesn't work". (The link gets generated, but as <a href="(url)"<>/a<, which isn't clickable and doesn't have any visible traces.)

So it may be worth adding, right after the Rich Text line, something along the lines of: Note that you need to type the link text first, and select it before generating the link.
