How close is this?


I use it all the time (but up until just now without the selected-text
feature).  It creates links with markup like this:

:[[http://www.pmwiki.org/wiki/PmWiki/PmWiki|PmWiki | PmWiki /
PmWiki]]: PmWiki is a wiki-based system for collaborative creation and
maintenance of websites.

(A definition, where the web page's title is the link text for the
definition term and the selected text is the definition.)
