    Linking to another another kb answer within an answer via answer variable
    User Story / Description:

    It would be nice if Oracle can implement a feature where we can link to another answer directly within an answer with using a pre-format for answer variables. For example, if you want to link to answer id 123 from interface "en", all you have to do is tag it as $en_123 and it would intelligently link it. Today, we have to create an answer variable for each answer we plan to link to from another answer. It's a lot of work to maintain. In answer, there's a table with with all the system variables under different headings (incident/contact/organization/misc). We should add one under Misc Variables with $interface_answer_id. The html output from this answer variable would be something like <a href="***" target="new">Answer ID 123: Summary of answer 123</a>.
