comment Was the Knuth-Plass line breaking output ever subjected to a blind experiment?
@cft Gordon Legge worked on reading by visually impaired subjects, but I do not remember anything about dislexic ones (thanks to Karl Berry for reminding me this. At the end of the day my memory works slowly...)

If you want to use the command without the http:// prefix, just say \newcommand{\click}[1]{\href[pdfnewwindow=true]{http://#1}{\nolinkurl{#1}}}

comment What is a hook - everypage package
1. Yes, hook is a general programming concept, it is not LaTeX specific. 2. write18 stream can be used to call any program (if not disabled by security considerations); one can call, e.g. sendmail to send an e-mail to the given address.
