Yeah, it's call a link

<a href="http://www.example.com">Put www.example.com in the address bar</a>

How would you use mouseover to return to the referring page?

You don't. That is what the "back" button on your browser is for.

If you are using a Gecko-based browser (e.g., Firefox, SeaMonkey),
install the PrefBar extension from <http://prefbar.mozdev.org/>. Then
go to PrefBar's "More Buttons" page at
<http://prefbar.mozdev.org/buttons.htmland import the "Text URL"
button.

When you then select a URL on a Web page expressed only as text and not
as a link (highlighting the text with your cursor), you can select the
"TXTURL" button on the PrefBar toolbar to launch a new tab with the page
at the selected URL.

If the highlighted text is NOT an actual URL, it will still appear in
the browser's address area in a new tab.

You know without PrefBar toolbar extension all you have to do is select
the test and drag to a tab or blank area beside a table to open a
"textual" url.
