So last week I finally figured out how to create hyperlinks to a website when writing an answer and obviously it looks much more neat, tidy and professional than just providing the raw url.

How do I therefore create a hyperlink when writing a comment ?

When writing a comment, you can also click the "help" link on the right of the comment box and receive further tips on writing and formatting with Markdown (the markup language used to format all posts on SE sites).

See more formatting tips on the full editing guide for SE sites.
