Typing directly after a link in the TinyMCE
editor causes the blue underlined font to be used. This cannot be undone, however the Wysiwyg plugin seems to do the "right thing" on save and only make the actual link into a link and the rest of the text is saved as plain text, even though it is displayed before save as blue and underlined. This breaks the principle of seeing what you get (and getting what you see).
I believe the TML2HTML
converter uses a styled span to represent the links, and the TinyMCE
editor automatically expands the spans if you add text adjacent to them, which is not desireable if the added text includes whitespace (ending the TWiki link).
On a somewhat related note; the "break link" button does not remove this formatting, even though it should by intuition.

I believe this is a visual effect only, and that it always does the right think on save. Can you please confirm that? If it is the (known) visual problem only, then this needs to be pushed upstream to TinyMCE
(suggestion: "Clicking the end of a span positions the cursor inside the span instead of outside it")
I'm fairly sure you're right. If you just ignore the strange visual effect, it does the right thing. Would it be hard to make a TinyMCE
plugin that can handle things such as applying that span to WikiWords
and ending the span at spaces?
Do you want me to make the TinyMCE
ticket or will you?

- I don't know, sorry. I don't know enough about what you can/can't do with TinyMCE
plugins to advise. Try asking on the TinyMCE
