    Is there any documentation on richtext? I tried the offline documentation, but it lead to a non-existant page.
    What I'd like to find is a method of making a part of the text clickable. For instance when someone links a piece of armour into chat, so that everyone can click and see that piece of armour.

    Ah, thanks Breyer. I was hoping that the source code for rich text would be easy to find and build upon. Something like <link=linkid><color=yellow>[some link]</color></link> which would use the events system to fire off an event with the linkid when clicked

    you could do it now (as i do now) without source code but this way will be better though

    The link is just broken. The file you are looking for is StyledText.html under the "Manual" directory in the Editor/Data/Documentation directory of your beta installation.
