In a FrameLabel for Manipulate, I would like part of the string to be a hyperlink. Is this possible? I have tried various things (e.g. insert hyperlink, and the Hyperlink function) but nothing has worked.

 Manipulate[u, {u, 0, 1}, 
 FrameLabel -> {Hyperlink["Wolfram Research, Inc.", ""], 
  Hyperlink["FrameLabel", "paclet:ref/FrameLabel"], 
  Column[{Hyperlink[Style["this Q/A", "Section", 24], 
  Hyperlink["Hyperlink", "paclet:ref/Hyperlink"]}], 
  Hyperlink["Manipulate", "paclet:ref/Manipulate"]}, 
  RotateLabel -> True]

For lables that contain hyperlinks interspersed with strings:

 Manipulate[u, {u, 0, 1},  FrameLabel -> 
 Row[{"Please see the doc pages \n ", 
     " and ", Hyperlink["Hyperlink", "paclet:ref/Hyperlink"]}]]
