The following link:


does not work. The code is:

Fixed in the next build. The problem here wasn't so much the link-within-the-link (it just made the problem very visible), but the underscore. Markdown escapes certain characters (like the underscore) in links, to prevent them from being treated as formatting characters. The two Markdown implementations use different escape characters for this: the client-side version uses a tilde, the server-side version uses U+001A. The former is a legal character for being auto-linked, but the latter was not. That's why the behaviors were differing.
