links inside a bulleted item take over the document
(WIN2K build 2031) This document has a < li> bulleted item ("Get more forums") without a < ul>< /ul> surrounding it. Everything from the end of that link to the end of the document becomes that link. Easy to reproduce: < li>< a href="wrong place"> don 't click here< /a>< /p> < a href="right place"> can't click here< /a>< /p>
What's happening is that all the content is getting nested inside of the first A tag: html refcount=3< head refcount=2< > body refcount=3< a href=http://www.wrong-link.com refcount=6< Text refcount=3<\n> li refcount=4< Text refcount=3< This link takes over the page!\n> p refcount=3< Text refcount=3<\n\n> a href=http://www.proper-link.com refcount=3< Text refcount=3< This link doesn't work! > > Text refcount=3<\n> > > > > >
Here's a more severe manifestation of the bug (seen a lot on www.suck.com): out of the link <a href="here's the link"> inside <p> the link</a> can't get out of the link
