Long multiline URLs are a pain but have become so frequent that
using a shortener cant keep up.
BTW my favorite shortener these days is

But rather than retyping them one can usually copy/paste the multiple
lines into the browser location box.  Firefox, at least, removes the
carriage return and it just works.  Occasionally you have to edit
a bit like take the "> " out if it was quoted.

If you are composing a message with containing a long URL, it is still
best to use a shortener to improve the chances the recipient will
follow it.

It is also best to include the "http://"; part of url's so that they
will be clickable in all contexts - like mailing list archives.

Fred who trys not to type anything that someone else has already typed.
