  • Component changed from General to Formatting
  • Type changed from defect (bug) to enhancement
  • Version changed from 4.8 to 3.5

Not exactly a bug, this is intentional. For some background, see [21790], #20210 and #17977.

Right now, the only allowed HTML attributes on a link in the user description are: href, title, and rel. However, I'm not sure why class shouldn't be allowed. On the other hand, targeting with CSS a link in the user bio might not be so hard. Changing from bug to enhancement as this could be something worth considering.
