Unfortunately weblink's are limited in the (undocumented) syntax they will handle (e.g. no asterisk or pound) but it will work - use openURL to execute.
Note that your program will stop when this happens and restart once the call completes so save your state and restore on restart.Starlight Computer Wizardry
