2001110612 trunk for MacOS9.x Have two browser windows open. Goto URL. Try to drag and drop the sixth link from the top in the page onto another window. Result:"http://www1.rocketbbs.co" can not be found. If you click the link instead of D&D, the correct URL, http://www1.rocketbbs.com/bc/pt.cgi?room=moto00 loads in a new window. This is because the source is written as: <a href="http://www1.rocketbbs.co m/bc/pt.cgi?room=moto00" target="main"> Thus, the line break in this link is translated into a true termination for this URL when D&D'ed. Also, if you D&D into an input area of a form, the D&D'ed text becomes: http://www1.rocketbbs.co m/bc/pt.cgi?room=moto00
This D&D used to work, so adding regression KW.
This misinterpretation of URL also affects marking of Visited Link: this link in the URL never gets highlighted as a visited link after you have visited the link. Therefore, there seem to be two different ways of interpreting the same URL in a source.
Just a quick note. The URL in the source is invalid. We special-case it for purposes of following the link because it was a common enough problem to warrant such special-casing....
