Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 153 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

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
