1. Thanks, I guess I have to learn how to use markups to fully use the
capabilities of pmwiki.

2. Would the last suggestion work with the output of (:pagelist group=...
:)? This is where I am encountering the issue - I want to show the pages in
a group automatically, so when users create pages they will be listed, but I
want the output to look like: Manchester United, and not ManchesterUnited.
When I create the link manually this can be overcome easily, but I am not
sure how to do it with pagelist.
