I have uploaded an image Image:Chariot5 cdba2 fl 00.jpg Please, how in Wikipedia can I make a clickable link to that image, rather than embedding the image?

--I don't know about image links, except to make thumbnails, such as [[Image:Chariot5_cdba2_fl_00.jpg|thumb|2 [[froggamann|froggamenn]] rídaþ in hýðe]] . That should look fine, when the placement is corrected. --James 15:24, 17 Oct 2004 (UTC)

--Just a clickable (external) link to something is [http://www.microsoft.com Microsoftes webbstede]. That makes it so that when someone views an article, he sees only "Microsoftes webbstede" instead of simply "[1]" or some other number. Internal, wiki links are double brackets [[Gewritesnama]]. --James 15:39, 17 Oct 2004 (UTC)

You should be able to make a clickable link to an image by putting a colon (:) before the Image tag, like this: [[:Image:Chariot5_cdba2_fl_00.jpg]]
Here's a live example: Image:Chariot5_cdba2_fl_00.jpg.
Note however that Wikipedia convention argues strongly in favour of embedded thumbnails rather than such links. --Saforrest 01:12, 28 Oct 2004 (UTC)
That convention continues here. Everyone should try as best as possible to make their articles as nice and professional and neutral viewpoint as possible. --James 16:08, 1 Nov 2004 (UTC)

--Maybe "séo éalunge" for aqualung? Etymologically, éa is the same word as aqua. --James 15:41, 17 Oct 2004 (UTC)

Ac "éa" segþ "river" and ne "water in general", and man mǽste dýfeþ mid scuban in sǽ and in gársecgum and in lacum and ne in fláwendum éam. Anthony Appleyard 09:55, 29 Oct 2004 (UTC)

What's the difference between "tó þæs þe," "hwonne," "þá," and other such words? --James 16:03, 1 Nov 2004 (UTC)
