E.g. <td><code><a href="about:about">about:about</a></code></td> Viewing or previewing the page shows these href values are removed. I can only guess this is for security reasons. The links editor help documents behind Editor Guide • Style Guide (links provided above) only mention external links to Bugzilla and WebKit. They should also document the link-removing behavior described here. I would expect that about: and chrome: links would be preserved so that "Copy Link" would be possible via context menu if users want to visit them in a newly opened tab. It's especially confusing marking them up as link that "do not work". http://mzl.la/1vxCDgA

I've updated docs to explain that about: and chrome: URLs are not allowed, and additionally cleaned up and improved the content on links in our contributor guide. That should essentially resolve this issue.
