how to make text clickable?

Say I want to make the text "title of document" link to http://domain.tld/path/to/doc.pdf . How would I do that with JIRA?

 

Here's how I'd do it with HTML:

<a href="http://domain.tld/path/to/doc.pdf">title of document</title>

 

Here's how I'd do it on github.com (which uses Markdown):

[title of document](http://domain.tld/path/to/doc.pdf)

 

Here's how I'd do it on stackoverflow:

[title of document][1]
 [1]: http://domain.tld/path/to/doc.pdf

 

What I don't know is how to do it in JIRA? Is it even possible?

 

Thanks!

It would be:

There's a little (?) under the text field in JIRA where the markup syntax is described. This syntax comes from Wikipedia's wikimarku, except they've swapped the url and the title (and I don't see an explanation for not following the defacto standard).
