Seems to work properly in trunk. Was probably fixed in the newer version of TinyMCE.

Replying to miqrogroove:

Fair enough.

Which version of IE are you seeing the issue in (and on what operating system)

This information will help us chase down this issue.

Windows XP. IE6 and IE8 both broken.

Works for me under IE8 on that linked site.

Closing as invalid due to this NOT being a WordPress bug, Please report it to the Tiny MCE Bug tracker on Sourceforce

It seems to work for most(based on info here) so its probably an edge case with your setup which TinyMCE developers would know more info about.

Once again, thanks for nothing.

Once again, thanks for nothing.

What do you expect? Its NOT a bug in WordPress? If you can reproduce it on a non-wordpress site, it points the fact that its a problem in TinyMCE itself, and not the integration with WordPress. We're WordPress developers, NOT TinyMCE Developers, whilst some know enough to diagnose basic issues, Complex issues such as yours requires someone with itnernal knowledge of the product, You'll only find those on the proper channels for getting TinyMCE bugs fixed.

Try making a link without the http://. The wording is as it's supposed to be, but the link is relative to the domain (localhost/google.com). With the http://, the wording does change as miqrogroove said.

It happens to me at both a WordPress based site, and the TinyMCE example page.

OT: I am *very* surprised. I was convinced you were a Linux junkie. :-)
