Possible Duplicates:
Links to URLs containing parentheses
URLs ending with ) are not well parsed
URL inside parenthesis are not automatically hyperlinked

Just found this question here, where this problem occurs:

best java Xml parser to manipulate/edit an existing xml document

The problem can be reproduced like this:

(best java Xml parser to manipulate/edit an existing xml document)

This is a workaround:

( best java Xml parser to manipulate/edit an existing xml document )

UPDATE: The problem here is really the opening parentheses, which keeps the link from being recognised as such. This works:

( best java Xml parser to manipulate/edit an existing xml document)))

But any of these don't:

{best java Xml parser to manipulate/edit an existing xml document

[best java Xml parser to manipulate/edit an existing xml document

(best java Xml parser to manipulate/edit an existing xml document

UPDATE: OK, so the true workaround is this:

(best java Xml parser to manipulate/edit an existing xml document)

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

    
    
This one here is really about parentheses not being part of the URL... So I think it's another issue... Or maybe a regression introduced by any of the fixes related to those? –  Lukas Eder Aug 16 '11 at 10:09

The way I read those answers, it's still by design. Wrapping a URL in parentheses is not how you indicate that it is a URL. There's probably a better dupe, though. I seem to remember reading it more recently. –  Cody Gray Aug 16 '11 at 10:10
    
OK, well, too bad... :-) –  Lukas Eder Aug 16 '11 at 10:12
    
@Cody, you're right. See the last update. I didn't know about that markup, though... –  Lukas Eder Aug 16 '11 at 10:16
