I have turned off WikiWordLinking on the wiki. This means that you don't need to hide stuff with [= =] or ` (e.g. [=PVR500=]).

It also means that you have to explicitly mark links with double brackets [[ ]] eg. [[Main.HomePage]] or [[Main/ReadMeFirst]]. In the change, I suspect some links have been "lost" - please help me fix them - or report them to me and I'll fix them.

I'm doing this since I could not find a secure way of enabling external, site-wide WikiWords and it seemed that we spent more time on trying to hide wikiwords from becomming links than we gain from the autolinking.
