See my answer to a question on programmers.stackexchange.com. I used the markup to link to a website. Is there a reason why this isn't working? The text is not hyperlinked properly.
What is meta?

The problem has to do with the carets in the URLs. I removed the carets and the text became a link immediately.
Have you considered using [LoadRunner]? When I worked on Government projects, we used [LoadRunner] to baseline builds and determine their performance. It works really well. : http://[snip].jsp?zn=bto&cp=1-11-126-17^8_4000_100 : https://[snip].jsp?zn=bto&cp=1-11-126-17^8_4000_100
Deleting the carets produces this (which doesn't link to the right places, obviously):
As of recently, when entering a link via the button (or Ctrl-L), these "evil" characters will automatically be escaped.
