I wanted to add a link containing "A*" to an answer. It had the link at the bottom and I wondered why he didn't link to A* normally. But when I tried it wouldn't show up as a URL in the preview, so I guess that's why it was added as plain text in the answer instead.

This is the link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A*_search_algorithm.


It's like magic!

A* Search

will: link, link.
