Hi John,

I think your question got lost in the linkedin conundrum.

If you are using Adobe Reader, even through firefox, you will find that 
it should make a link out of http://wexfordpress.net automatically.

Otherwise, one of the "features" of making an annotation frame for 
linking is that it doesn't end up showing in the PDF, except for when 
the cursor hovers over where it is (hopefully) you see an indication 
that there is something there to link. Thus, you typically have to put 
these invisible linking objects on top of some more visible content for 
it to be obvious they are there.
