I like the third. Three fields, separated by pipes. Fits the current 

link text
tool tip

If only two fields used, then is no tool tip. Old sites and links with 
no tooltip will fail gracefully.

If only one field used, whatever the default is now.

I can't see a situation where you'd have a tool tip but no link text.

Method one, you have pesky quotation marks to deal with, and it visually 
runs into the URL. Pain to debug.

Method two, you have another markup word to use.

I have no comment on the links done using -> because I don't use that
