Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 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

This question looks to be written correctly, however the link that should read "this page" is extended to include all text in the question up to the next link. I can't see any error in the question, am I missing something?

Fixed by just editing the question.

Sometimes old questions have bad formatting due to bugs in the markdown handling at the time the post was last saved. A lot of bugs have been fixed over time, but some require posts to be re-rendered before the displayed state is correct.

Editing forces a fresh rendering and fixes those issues - unless the bug hasn't been fixed yet, obviously, but that was not the case for this question.

You spoiled my fun! I was all gearing up to post a snide "no repro" comment. – Cody Gray Mar 15 '12 at 10:38
Seems so obvious now :) thanks for that – Patrick McDonald Mar 15 '12 at 20:31
