Embedding URLs in $Text

Is there anyway to embed a URL in $Text such that it has a label other that the URL itself? For example, in HTML, you would use an href tag:

<a href="http://classics.mit.edu/Aristotle/posterior.html">Posterior Analytics</a>

Perhaps something like:

[[http://classics.mit.edu/Aristotle/posterior.html|Posterior Analytics]]

Obviously I could use the above HTML syntax, but that is worse that just embedding the URL itself. What I am after is having a meaningful name being used as a label for the URL rather than displaying the URL.

Yes, select some $Text and use Note menu → Make Web Link (⌘+⌥+⌃+L) and enter your URL in the dialog.
