Hi and welcome to WordPress Core Trac!

I suggest
See <a href="">documentation on the Settings API</a>.

The link has been plain text since [13785] (with updates in [14070], [32116], [34315], and [45674]).

Yes, separating the URL from the text string can be good, especially if/when the documentation URL changes again in the future.
