Links with URIs of schemes other than http/https are broken
On revision 5 of How to read Firefox "about:memory" correctly? I tried to set markdown links to
about:memory (a special "URL" similar to
about:config supported by Mozilla based browsers), ad it didn't work...
- When I tried the naive thing (using the link button and pasting
about:memory), the editor set the link to
http://about:memorywhich obviously didn't work.
- When I edited the "target" portion of the link syntax to be
about:memoryit was not rendered as a link.
- Even trying
<a href="about:memory">about:memory</a>does not seem to work in the live preview. I didn't submit that edit because there didn't seem to be a reason to further pollute the edit history.
Admittedly it is a rare use case, but should our markdown support a broad selection of "protocols"? If not, should pure html support it?
