The [area] and [page] tags (etc.) will do the following:
* Take care of the session ID specification in the URI, if necessary.
* Ensure that any characters that are invalid in a HTTP URI are
* URI arguments (if specified, automatically generated or both) will
be properly delimited and encoded.
* Generate a HTTPS URI, instead of HTTP, if the target page is in
the AlwaysSecure list or the secure=1 argument is specified.
* A bunch of other things.
You should never hard-code HREFs in Interchange-driven pages unless
the target page is outside of Interchange's control. I.e. it points
to a different website.
