+Converts URLs in text into clickable links.
-Note that if ``urlize`` is applied to text that already contains HTML markup,
-things won't work as expected. Apply this filter only to *plain* text.
+Works on links beginning with ``http://``, ``https://``, or ``www.`` and
+ending with ``.org``, ``.net`` or ``.com``. Links can have trailing punctuation
+(periods, commas, close-parens) and leading punctuation (opening parens) and
+``urlize`` will still do the right thing.
+
+Links generated by ``urlize`` have a ``rel="nofollow"`` attribute added
+to them.
For example::
{{ value|urlize }}
If ``value`` is ``"Check out www.djangoproject.com"``, the output will be
-``"Check out <a
-href="http://www.djangoproject.com">www.djangoproject.com</a>"``.
+``"Check out <a href="http://www.djangoproject.com"
+rel="nofollow">www.djangoproject.com</a>"``.
+
+The ``urlize`` filter also takes an optional parameter ``autoescape``. If
+``autoescape`` is ``True``, the link text and URLs will be escaped using
+Django's built-in :tfilter:`escape` filter. The default value for
+``autoescape`` is ``True``.
+
+.. note::
+
+ If ``urlize`` is applied to text that already contains HTML markup,
+ things won't work as expected. Apply this filter only to plain text.

+longer than the given character limit.
-**Argument:** Length to truncate URLs to

+including the ellipsis that's added if truncation is necessary.
For example::
{{ value|urlizetrunc:15 }}
If ``value`` is ``"Check out www.djangoproject.com"``, the output would be
-``'Check out <a

+``'Check out <a href="http://www.djangoproject.com"
