Select the Rich Editor option before you start typing (you can do so after you start, but it messes up the last couple of characters). You'll see a little icon that looks like a globe with chains. Highlight the word you want to make a hyperlink, then click that icon. It'll give you a pop-up window where you can put the URL.

What do you mean exactly about messing up the characters? I always forget to select the rich editor until halfway through a comment, but I don't recall having a problem. Is it something I can't see from here?

I see it pretty consistently. If you're typing and you switch to the Rich Editor, the last character you typed, plus any line breaks after that, will get "eaten" when you start typing again. I don't know why.

Except for videos, I've pretty much stopped using the Rich Editor anyway, since I can type raw HTML directly.
