The footers are plain text. You can't make them HTML without
significant source code mods. Even if you put HTML tags in the footers
(which you can't do in the web interface, but you can do with
bin/config_list), it won't work because the tags would still be in a
text/plain part.

Some MUAs (email clients) will recognize the 'http://' leadin and
render the URL as a clickable link, but this is up to the MUA.
