    The browser treats the "whatever:" as a protocol to follow, that's why it's showing them to you as links The funny thing is that it rejects "whatever:[b]:[/b]"...

    "unset a

    This is clearing the "a" variable

    echo " $a=$(who) "

    This is echoing to the terminal the expansion of the "a" variable (which you just cleared a line above!) as well as a "=" sign followed by the output of the "who" command.

    What you are trying to do is:

    unset a
    a="$(who)"
    echo "$a"

    However, why don't you just do:

    function a { who }

Who we are ?
