New - Direct links to non-ACOM source URLs on profile page

With a new icon, non-ACOM sources listed within the sidebar "source information" on each profile page are now linking directly to the source URL (when provided) rather than to the ACOM citation page. Nice.

Unfortunately...there appears to be a minor glitch in constructing the profile page link.

In one case I noted (http://trees.ancestry.com/tree/26542746/person/13812763866), a capital letter "W" within the correct URL...

http://dentistry.temple.edu/sites/default/files/uploads/Wint...

...was changed to a lower case "w" in the "source information" list...

http://dentistry.temple.edu/sites/default/files/uploads/wint...

...which generates a 404 error at the source URL.

Perhaps a minor fix?

What would be even nicer would be to have non-ACOM sources also displayed within each "member connect" listing.
