Ermm... I don't understand JSPWiki's concept of attachment. When I  
attach a file to a page I edit, the resulting page does not show any  
sign or indication of the file or even of the fact that something has,  
in fact, been attached, which is what I expect. That is, something in  
the style of email attachments, which result in clickable links on the  
mail reader's page.
