Is it possible to search for a word or string in a link and then, once found, open the link with a macro, i.e. without having to click on it with the mouse?

The basic approach will be something like this:
Code:
$term = 'Link'
$doc = Document.active
$found = $doc.text.find $term
if $found
   $link = $doc.text.linkAtIndex $found.location
   $link.activate $doc
else
   prompt 'Sorry. No links with term "' & $term & '" found'
end

Note however that Find will only search the display text for the term, not the link itself. If you wanted to search for words in the links, you'd probably have to write something more complicated.
