Odd.  When I click them on pmwiki.org (in the WikiSandbox), the 
first button gives me "[[Page link]]" and the second button gives 
"[[http:// | link text]]".

We don't really have an "underline button" -- the intent is to
separate internal and external links.  If someone wants to suggest
a better graphic for the "internal link" button I can make it happen.

They do, at least for me (see above).  Perhaps it's a skin or
other custom setting causing the issue?
