Bug Description

When displaying information about a package in the Software Centre we use the label "Website" for the URL which may contain a link to a support site, or something else which is far more exciting than the label might have us believe.

Consider using a label.

In <> I recommend changing it to "Developer Web Site". (For ISV software this would have a "Report a Problem" link alongside it.)
