I've posted a comment on Stack Overflow, as you may see here.

The relevant text is the first sentence:

Note that this RegEx doesn't capture URLs that have subdomains of one letter only, like "http://m.sitename.com".

(In the quote here, it renders fine).

After posting, the end-quote was parsed as part of the URL, but worse (and weirder) than that - a wild semicolon appeared just before the comma. You may see in the following screenshot:

The original text of the comment is this, no semicolon there:

I've tried to edit the comment's source text, by adding a space before the comma, but that didn't change anything.
