Thank you for responding to my questions, Manzabar. I had already read that section of the Codex and was hoping for further clarification. Both the Description and the Notes of a link can be displayed using parameters for the
<?php get_links; ?> Template Tag. I am trying to figure out if there's any advantage to displaying one or the other, if I am trying to create an annotated directory of links. For example, could I insert the following in either Description or Notes and have it rendered correctly by the template tag:
<p>Another good source of information on cold climate gardening. Their online publications catalog is not organized for easy perusal, I'm afraid. <i><b>Ornamental Grasses for Cold Climates</b></i> is located under the Landscaping - Plant Selection. <i><b>Roses for the North</b></i> is under Flowers - Culture. It is probably better to use the search engine provided if you have a specific topic in mind, because it was easier to browse under their previous organization. Some of their more popular titles have free excerpts available for download, so it's worth taking the time to see what they've got.</p>
This is typical of what I have on my current website. Is there too much text for the Description or Notes field? Will the html code "show," or will it be rendered properly? Perhaps no one knows, and I will just have to experiment. But I was hoping someone with an intimate knowledge of WordPress would be able to shed some light on these questions.
