when creating a hypertext link that is inclosed in quotation marks it creates
two   links. the first is correct but the second extends until the begining of
the next quote. it does not show it this way when sending the message.   

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. put the text below in a new composed email make only the first coral reef
adventure a hyper-link (quotes and comma are out side the hyper-link text)
2. that day is "Coral Reef Adventure," which will be shown at 1 and 3:30 pm. 
Admission to the film is priced separately.  "Coral Reef Adventure" is a journey 

3. either "send in plain text and html" or "send in html only"

Actual Results:  
when creating and sending the message it only shows one hypertext link
but receiving the message mozilla gave two hyper-links instead of just one. 
the first is correct and only encompasses coral reef adventure
but the second starts from the quote immediately after the comma until beginning
quote on the second "coral reef adventure" text

Expected Results:  
only one hypertext link on the first coral reef adventure only the word are
hyper-linked not the quotes or comma.  just how it looks before the message is sent.

This is the code i think it puts in (i opened it in outlook express and clicked
reply, then clicked the “source” tab at the bottom of the new window)

that day is "<A 
  href="">Coral Reef Adventure</A>,<A 

  which will be shown at 1 and 3:30 pm.&nbsp; Admission to the film is priced 
  separately.&nbsp; "</A>Coral Reef Adventure" is a journey
