Description

10 years ago
User-Agent:       Opera/9.63 (X11; Linux x86_64; U; en) Presto/2.1.1
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-US; rv:1.9.2a1pre) Gecko/20090210 Minefield/3.2a1pre

The following code seems to be rendered wrong:
  <a name="news"/>
  <dl>
    <dt>a</dt>
    <dd>b<a href="c">c</a></dd>
  </dl>
the link must be displayed next to the b, and not on a new line.

the problem does not appear if <a name="news"/> is changed into <a name="news"></a>



Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Visit the URL to see the problem
2.
3.
Actual Results:  
the link is displayed to the left

Expected Results:  
the link is displayed next to the "b"
I can see the issue with SM 1.9.1 branch while Chrome and Opera are displaying on one line
