When a URL contains another full and unescaped URL
within its query string, it is correctly parsed as a
single big URL when placed directly into the text.
However, if put in brackets as [URL] or [URL
description], the URL-in-a-bracket parsing breaks. The
brackets, URL, and description appear as plain text,
and the sub-URL gets reparsed as a standalone hyperlink.
appears correctly as a big link to the correct, full URL.
should display as "" being a link, but instead
appears with brackets and full URL intact as text, but
the portion "http://www.unausa.org/programs/mun.asp" is
a linked URL.
Workaround: Replacing the : with %3A fixes the parsing
problem. (Of course, in this particular case only the
shorter URL is actually needed, as it will be
dynamically redirected to the longer URL.)
