11.5.9. ulink

When translating a ulink element, the default PDF rendering is to place the URL in square brackets following the link text. This is not only ugly and intrusive, but tends to lead to ugly line breaks and paragraph formatting, too.

A better approach is to set the ulink.footnotes parameter to 1. This moves such URLs to footnotes.
