on (ttk.me b/4Q21) using BBEdit

Sometimes web pages display brief warning boxes at the top with "learn more" links. The learn more link in a specific warning box should go to a page specifically about that warning with, in rough order:

  1. screenshot of warning box
  2. quoted full text of the warning (for searchability / search engine discovery)
  3. detailed text answering:
