I finally found the code that would allow you to do EXACTLY what you want,

Here is a specific example of the above in action:
(Again, it's a long URL, so it'll likely wrap).

Once again, be aware that this works ONLY in MSIE, so if your audience uses
only MSIE, this will work, but if they use other browsers, a different
option will need to be pursued.

Hope this helps!
