Thanks :) Now I know how to do it! This is me! – aF. Feb 6 '12 at 15:20
Didn't it cross your mind to click the "help" link to the right, below the "Add Comment" button? The answer is the very first sentence in this help: Comments use mini-Markdown formatting: [link]( _italic_ bold code. The post author will always be notified of your comment. To also notify a previous commenter, mention their user name: @peter or @PeterSmith will both work (no offence, but clicking help links should be common knowledge :)) – Shadow Wizard Feb 6 '12 at 15:22

Yes. Simply put the text of the link between [ ] and follow it immediately with the URL between ( ), and it will be a link.
