D'oh here too...now that I actually read  the page rather than skimming 
for syntax. For Firefox users, I'll recommend installing the IE tabe 
extension and right clicking and selecting "Open in IE tab".

One related gotcha is that if the path contains spaces, you apparently 
have to replace the spaces with %20 for it to work. I didn't see that 
anywhere in the moinmoin link syntax docs.
