I'll be the second to wail that not all users 'click' to select a
hypertext node. I've used WWW on a Liveboard (pen-based input), and

One place where 'click here' seems to be appropriate might be in the
online documentation for XMosaic itself. Unfortunately, people look to
the 'home pages' not only for online help, but also examples of good
style. Instead of:

    <A HREF="link">Click here</A> for more information. 

    <MENU> <LI> <A HREF="link">More information.</A> </MENU>

might be preferable.
