Bug: Included Pages Display Some Links Incorrectly

Errors in displaying some links in included pages that look fine on the original page: - Mailto shows as link to non-existent wiki page - legitimate link such as [Perl and other URLS] sometimes shows as non-existent wiki link IF you have an extra ] before or after the link - three square brackets in a row.

Test case

  • Put the following text into a wiki page.
  • Include it from another page.
  • Observe Perl site link not shown correctly in page with inclusion
  • Observe mailto link not shown correctly in page with inclusion

   1 unfamiliar syntax: [[http://www.lua.org/ Lua]]
   2 extra [: [[[http://www.perl.com/ Perl]]
   3 extra ]: [[http://e-p-i-c.sourceforge.net/ Eclipse plugins]]]
   4 extra [ with text: [Java: [[http://www.sun.com/software/learnabout/java/ Sun]]
   5 http: [[http://www.java.net/ Projects]]]
   6 Bad link [(Mozilla web tools - same data)
   7 news: [[news://news.mozilla.org/netscape.public.mozilla.webtools News]]
   8 mailto: [[mailto:mozilla-webtools-request@mozilla.org?subject=subscribe][Mail list]] ]
