[scribus] Clickable URL links in PDF export

I am looking for a way to make part of the text in a text box be a clickable 
URL link when exported as PDF.  I found a previous document on this from April 
2008 at http://lists.scribus.net/pipermail/scribus/2008-April/028860.html.  
However, the solution described here is not suitable for my need.  In my case 
the link is an integral part of the surrounding text.  I don't see a way to 
put a link frame inside a text frame in such a way that the secondary frame 
moves when the surrounding text from the primary frame is changed.

I tried creating an html file which has <a> tags in it, then importing that 
into a text box.  The imported text is about 0.2 points high - completely 
unreadable!  When I use text properties to apply a paragraph style to it, the 
clickability of the link disappears.

Does anyone have any suggestions on how to do this?

Thanks - Bill Gee
