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 (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?

It would be:

[Link to Google|]

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).
