Re: [xep-support] Automatically-active URIs??

Thanks for the response. However, it's not control about wrapping to
a new line that I need; I am aware of the various techniques you
mentioned. What I want is the ability to say "even though this looks
like a URI, I don't to have it become an active link" or to say "if I
don't use an explicit fo:basic-link element, don't turn any apparent
URIs into active links".

I mentioned the line-wrapping (and hyphenation) issue only to
illustrate how that automatic active-link process can sometimes
create an invalid link.

Thanks again,
