why do my hyperlinks display wrong? (3 posts)

    Can anyone tell me why when I place this code into my post:

    <a href="bbc.co.uk/cornwall">BBC</a>

    it actually displays in my blog as:

    http://www.richardsilverstein.com/tikun_olam/2005/06/africa-calling-live8s-sop-to-african-music/bbc.co.uk/cornwall

    which is of course a broken link. I've never seen this behavior ever in my blogging experience.

    Now, that I see the same behavior at this site as at my blog's I'm wondering whether this is a browser (Firefox 1.0.4) problem?

    You need to prefix with http://

    <a href="http://bbc.co.uk/cornwall">BBC</a>

    Of course! I copied this link from someone's comment in my blog & didn't notice the mistake. Thanks for correcting my daftness.
