Don't use clickText. Instead have a linkClicked handler. The linked text

Wow, thanks Sarah for turning me on to this one.  And to think I was scripting 
all that stuff by hand.  I just replaced 20 lines of script with a single line.  Sigh.

Anyway, one question I have:  Once I've set the linkText of a chunk to some string, 
where do all these nifty linkText strings get stored?  Are they the equivalent of 
custom properties of that field?  It seems like magic that I can have these 
potentially very long strings stored somewhere, and yet I don't know where....
