I think you need the actionUrl, which is implemented on the canvas:

renderContentOn: html 
	html anchor 
		url: (html actionUrl) , 'abc123'
		with: 'Click me'

I found  WAApplication#url which sent me on an interesting journey...because when I did "self halt" inside of a WAComponent subclass and ran "self application" then I get a WARequestContextNotFound error, although apparently that's only when I launch a debugger.

How can I get the full URL?  I don't want to hardcode it...I assume I should be able to get the base URL of my application from somewhere but I'm not sure.
