Consider the following answer of mine: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/1098031/symbian-series-40-60/1098265#1098265

[Nokia Series 40](http://www.forum.nokia.com/Technology_Topics/Device_Platforms/Series_40/)
is based on Nokia's proprietary operating system. For third party application
development, you can use Java ME and MIDP, Flash Lite or widgets (i.e.
XHTML+CSS+Javascript).

In preview the hyperlink displays correctly, but on the actual answer it takes the whole paragraph to be the hyperlink text.


Update: There was another hyperlink issue in my answer:

For both, you can find the tools and SDKs from
[http://www.forum.nokia.com](Forum Nokia), alongside other developer resources.

which should have been

For both, you can find the tools and SDKs from
[Forum Nokia](http://www.forum.nokia.com), alongside other developer resources.

Fixing this made the issue mentioned above disappear: Now the Series 40 link text displays as I intended.

However, the issue still remains: Preview and final were showing different formatting.

I've had a similar issue on a post. When posting an answer with multiple links with anchors, two entire paragraphs were gobbled up and treated (incorrectly) as a hyperlink. Everything looked good in preview, but went beserk when posted. After I removed the anchors from the links, all was good again. Here's the post, if it helps for comparison: stackoverflow.com/revisions/1109158/list –  Telemachus Jul 20 '09 at 0:08

Carl, your "bug" is right here:

* <a href="http://code.google.com/p/counterclockwise/>Counterclockwise</a>
                                                     ^
                                           missing closing quote

I fixed it in your post.
