<a href = "">Try this. I've also have had problems in the past where the only way to get an <a> element to be accepted was to remove the spaces surrounding the =, but I can't remember exactly where I tried to link to, and I can't reproduce it.

    Ah, thanks. My initial diagnosis is that the bracket expansion is happening first, and then the html screening, and the screening after, and you're ending up with quote-within-quote problems, which the html screener throws it's hands in the air about. This could be completely wrong. In any case, URI-encoding or HTML-encoding the inital [ fixes it. I may use this as a test case to unravel tye's new code at some later point; I suspect figuring out just what goes wrong and how to fix it will take me on a nice tour of the code.

    Tricky URL to try to link to. You could escape the brackets in the URL and use <a href=""> or the Monastery "in-house" brackets:


    But i am afraid that linking via [[1].htm] is not possible, not even with <a href=""> ...

    But i did make a link to the page. ;)
