I'm wanting to make an article link, much like Wikipedia makes to its
own articles, but instead of using [[whatever]] like would be done to
an article on the same site, I want to make it be a link over to the
site, for the article there. The <nowiki> tags
with HTML to do it just escape the HTML out to be displayed (e.g. its
nowiki and nohtml combined).
Example. I have the term Postfix in a local wiki page. If I wrote a
page about Postfix on my local wiki, I could just use [[Postfix]] and
be done. But I don't want to have to load all the templates from
Wikipedia, or maintain that article here. I just want to link over to
Wikipedia and let people read it there.
