thanks Pm!

I looked at selflink vs selfreference more closely:
extendmarkup.php makes $LinkPageSelfFmt into a bold <b>tag,
which does not go well in gemini skin's sidebar, since all the
list-items are links and <a>tags and styled as such.
So for the sake of the sidebar it is better to disable in
extendmarkup.php (ca line 476):
   $LinkPageSelfFmt = "<b class='selflink'>\$LinkText</b>";
but that also effects the selflinks in the page content.
So I came up with the following solution:
In local/config.php place after calling extendmarkup.php

  # changes to extended markup:
  $LinkPageSelfFmt = "<a class='selflink'>\$LinkText</a>";
  $HTMLStylesFmt[] = "
  a.selflink { color:#000; text-decoration:none  }
  #sidebar a:hover.selflink {background:none; color:#000}

This redefines $LinkPageSelfFmt to nearly the pmwiki default, but
leaves out the href=... bit, so the link does not point to anything
anymore, but still is an anchor and gets treated the same in the
sidebar as the other <a>tags. The subsequent style definition will
hide the link character and makes it appear as black text.

Question about this:
  $LinkPageSelfFmt = "<a class='selflink'>\$LinkText</a>";
has an advantage over
  $LinkPageSelfFmt = "<a class='selflink' href='\$LinkUrl'>\$LinkText</a>";
or are there any problems with this?
