I set up a stack containing a single field containing the text:

raspberry flavoured coffee is not much
better than black tea flavoured beer

and, wishing to set 'black tea' to linkText manually,
I went into 'Browse' mode, selected 'black tea' with
my mouse, and then set that to 'Link' by using the drop-down 'Text'
menu in the menuBar.

Dead easy.
