Some links are sub-optimal in these mockups. Having link on "here",
"these" or "this" is not really helpful. See
<http://www.w3.org/QA/Tips/noClickHere> and
<http://www.cs.tut.fi/~jkorpela/www/click.html> for more details.

I think it would be better to have these links phrased as:

 * I want [obfs2 bridges] for tor-obfsproxy-browser.
 * I want [obfs2 bridges] or [obfs3 bridges] for
 * I want [direct bridges] for other bundles like tor-browser.
 * This website allows you to get [bridge addresses].
 * Please read the [introduction to obfuscated bridges and
   pluggable transports].

The square brackets delimit the linked part. I've replaced "direct
bridges" because I think "direct" is probably a better wording than
"normal". The norm might shift to obfsproxy bridges in the next months…

What do you think?
