The owners of the site have asked me to add a link to a specific page to the WEL_MSG of adduser.php. I noticed that the PM in my test account (which retained a copy of the welcome message) dispplays the <br> code (included in the language file) as plain text. This leads me to believe that the language file will ignore any html added to it.

IOW, I want to add
Code
<a href="url here">go here</a>
but I suspect that this will simply be displayed as plain text, which many new registratns will find confusing. (Our forum attracts a large number of retired folk that are not very computer savvy.)

Is there a way to add a viable link to a language file? Or do I have to do this some other way? (Or it's not even possible.)

Some areas allow HTML and some don't, you'll need to comment out your code however:
Code
<a href=\"url\" target=\"_blank\">go here</a>
