Changing the Links Widget appearance

My problem :

I would like to insert html codes like these : <br> + <b>text</b> or <strong>text</strong> in the Links widget in order to display something like this :

Name of the Newspaper
The links itselp

Another Newspaper name
The link to the other newspaper

Is there a way to insert these codes ?

Thank you !

I confused, you want to list the link and then the url?

Maybe you could do this.
Create Link Categories and add eack link to a category. When you use the 'Links' widget, the category will be bigger and bolder and then the link will be underneath it.

Your suggestion is not exactly what I had in mind.
I would like to know (if possible) how to insert an HTML code like <strong> in order to put some part of the link in bold, italic or a soft return <br>.
Example :
Article by John Snow for the World Daily.

Is this possible under Atahualpa ?

Thank you !

the built in links section is controlled by WordPress, however you could roll your own Links widget.

Add a text widget and then add something like this to it
HTML Code:
<div id="linkcat-8" class="widget widget_links"><div class="widget-title"><h3>My Links</h3></div>
	<ul class='xoxo blogroll'>
<li><a href="http://planet.wordpress.org">Article by <strong>John Snow</strong> the <strong>World Daily</strong>.</a></li>
<li><a href="http://forum.bytesforall.com/showthread.php?p=15977#post15977">reply by <strong>Juggledad</strong> the <strong>Atahualpa forums</strong>.</a></li>
	</ul>
</div>
