In question or answer comments, hyperlinks currently get rendered in a truncated form as:
This cuts off the most useful part of the link (the post title, or an URLified version of it anyway).
I suggest using the
title= attribute of the anchor for links to internal SOFU sites, so that when hovering over the link a popup tooltip will show the full post title. In the case above, the link might be:
<a href="http://stackoverflow.com/questions/9033/hidden-features-of-c" title="Hidden Features of C#?">stackoverflow.com/questions/9033/...</a>
In addition to being more informative, this will remove the ambiguity introduced by the URLified title (does "hidden-features-of-c" represent hidden features of C? C++? C#?).
Update: The formatting of internal comment links was recently changed and this question marked as "status-completed". Cool! However this is only half of what is needed, as the tooltip text is created by extracting whatever text the commenter types after the question number, and bears no relation to what the question title actually is in the database. As a result (see the comments below) one can make any tooltip text appear, and this feature still doesn't resolve the ambiguity mentioned in the previous paragraph.
