I would not believe that, because links does not contain the necessary port
(for instance :8888 which I choose), but where the path is relative, there
it really works.

I see. The page www.wikipedia.org contains *solely* links to other page addresses,
that's the problem which confused me.

And regarding the www.stunnel.org, 
does not work, while

At last I was quite successful with configuration like this:
hosts :       localhost en.wikipedia.org upload.wikimedia.org commons.wikimedia.org www.stunnel.org

stunnel.conf :

client = yes
accept =
connect =

client = yes
accept =
connect =

client = yes
accept =
connect =

client = yes
accept =
connect =

Of course, I had to add the :8888 port to linked addresses and delete
"s" from "https" manualy, but better than nothing :-) .
