Actually, I'm looking to create a footnote like a bibliography. For
example, if I have a quote that I want to cite:

"The rain in Spain stays mainly in the plain." [1]

Then at the bottom of the page, create a footnote for the reference:

[1] My Fair Lady, Alan Jay Lerner.

This can be done easily with the markup in Footnotes,
FootnotesExtended, and MarkupExtensions (the [^citation goes here^]
tag). But if I want to add a link to the citation:

[1] [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Rain_in_Spain|My Fair Lady]],
Alan Jay Lerner.

The link does not process. It simply shows up exactly like above
(without actually creating the link). I am looking to add link
processing to the footnotes markup. Anyone have any ideas?
