    What I have done before I offered the user a simple text box and given a tooltip text of something along the lines of "Please copy and paste web URL in this box. Ensure URL begins with http:// "

    I then took this value with a Velocity format and encased it in HTML like so:

    #set ( $link = $_XPathTool.selectSingleNode( $contentRoot, "/path/to/link" ).value
    <a href="${link}" target="_blank">${linktext}</a>
