When clicking the URL icon with nothing selected you get a box that says this:

http://example.com/ "optional title"

So i wrote in

http://www.msdn.com "My link text"

However, this produced the following:

[enter link description here][1]

[1]: http://www.msdn.com "My link text"

What have i done wrong?

P.S. I nearly always write my title, select it then create the link, however just wondering what's up with this use case.

The 'title' is actually the title HTML attribute of the link, which is reflected in the browser usually as a popup that appears when you hover over the link. For example:

Hover me!

Which appears on my computer as:
