[Israel.pm] Opening a browser from perl Tk on Windows

1. I would like to open the default browser from a Perl Tk window 
under Windows, without freezing the Tk program.

Perl 5.6 used to have a Win32::Shell::Execute, but that seems to have 
disappeared under 5.8 .

2. Secondly, and less importantly, is there a way to do this using a 
"Link" (underlined blue text) in the Tk window itself, or does this 
have to happen through a button. I.e. can you add a command to 
clicking on text in Tk?
