This doesn't happen in IE.

  1. Place the cursor at the end of a link.
  2. Type some text
  3. See that the text doesn't appear to be linked, but the link inspector option is available

Short term solution as decided by Trevor, Inez and James: Make links not auto-extend in the model, and fix IE so it doesn't auto-extend in the view (to make it work like other browsers).

Trevor's commit has been merged; assigning to Inez for the IE-specific fixes to come.

Column Prototype
This is a very early prototype of a persistent column. It is not expected to work yet, and leaving it open will activate other new features which will break things. Press "\" (backslash) on your keyboard to close it now.
