Collecting links for printing

In Improving Link Display for Print, Aaron Gustafson describes a really neat and unobtrusive JavaScript technique for collecting and displaying the URIs a document contains when it is printed.

Inserting a footnote for each URI is much better for readability than using CSS generated content to display the complete URI next to the link or quote that contains it. I'll look into implementing this here in the near future.
