When you paste a link into the "Insert Hyperlink" box, it adds it automatically as a citation link:
[Example 1] : http://example.com
But when you paste a link starting with a space
, it tries to URL encode it, to change the space to
%20, and then sticks a
http:// on the front to make it a valid link:
[Example 2] : http://%20http://example.com
This, however, means the link doesn't work.
Please could leading whitespace be stripped from the URL?
