This is a very trivial bug and probably will not be fixed. But maybe it should be documented, possibly just by a post such as this.
- See also related bug in inline links in comments.
How to reproduce.
Make or attempt to make a naked html link such as the one above but with a typo, for instance omit a space between the link and the text.https://cooking.meta.stackexchange.com/questions/581/bug-in-inline-links-in-comments In this case note that the text immediately is terminated with a full stop|period.
Result in review this link can be seen and used. (Clarification: go in to edit mode and you will see what I mean. In edit mode the useable hyperlink is seen.) As expected. BUT Unexpected when the question is posted there is no clickable link only the text.
Problem I expect consistency. If something works in Preview I feel it should work when posted. Corrective Action I would suggest either:
- It be fixed so that text works in the final post.
- Or probably a better course of action would be to have the preview behave in the same way as the final post and break the link display in preview.
