While working in Jira, it would be handy to refer to a page in Confluence, or even to create a new page if necessary regarding the task.

When JIRA 5 is released in the first quarter of 2012 it will have a new feature called Remote Issue Links. Any Confluence page, from a Confluence instance connected via Application Links, that has a JIRA issue linked/embedded on it will be automatically linked to the JIRA issue. See: https://skitch.com/mattnhodges/gixrr/mkt-3746-project-buzz-lightyear-atlassian-jira-extranet-special-projects

Here's the Confluence page with the embedded JIRA issue: https://skitch.com/mattnhodges/gixrm/confluence-marketing-project-buzz-lightyear-marketing-extranet

You can also create links to Confluence pages from JIRA issues manually. See: https://skitch.com/mattnhodges/gixri/link-atlassian-jira-extranet-special-projects

This possiblity is to refer to the Confluence page with the standard wiki format, like [here|<complete http link to confluence page>]

JIRA 5 will include a new feature called Remote Issue Links (http://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA/JIRA+5.0+EAP+5+Release+Notes#JIRA50EAP5ReleaseNotes-RemoteIssueLinkingimprovedinEAP5) which will make it easy to link to, amongst other things, Confluence pages within a JIRA issue.
