Where has this annoying fad of putting urls in [code][/code] tags come from?
Edit: clarification: I'm talking about putting urls, all on their own, inside [code][/code] tags. In this case, the interaction of the comment and url handling kills the link. A url in a C++ comment block in code is fine.
The tagging makes the link unnavigable, which is really annoying!
Pretty (?) but useless... :-( http://www.thefreedictionary.com/unnavigable
Under some conditions, [code][/code] tags do stop the link from working. I added a PS to the OP showing the HTML that gets generated: there are no <A></A> tags in the HTML generated for the URLS in the code block.
The problem seems to occur then it's just a url in [code][/code] tags
Or are you saying that this is navigable for you? http://www.thefreedictionary.com/unnavigable
