Having an odd problem, and if there's already a thread about it, I can't find it. I put in the basic <a href="link">Word</a>, and it shows up fine except that it still has the </a> visible at the end. I've also noticed an occasional space in the middle of the linked word. I am just clueless here.

Edit: I just realised that if I take out the slash at the end of the link, it fixes the </a>, but not the random space. I have no idea why maybe one link out of twenty would make the html break just because of a slash.

Oddly enough, if you look at your source code, it even says you've spaced it out.
Any SJ related questions? Feel free to look around, and if you can't find an answer, make a topic here and we'll get to you as fast as we can! :D

To avoid long lines of text stretching the page, line breaks are automatically inserted every...I don't know, 70-80 characters. I don't think these actually happen in the middle of tags anymore, like they used to (at least, I think they used to). This feature shouldn't be necessary in Author Comments, really.

Amante: Not too odd. She didn't space it, SJ does this automatically, I assume to prevent long page-stretching strings of text. I've written more on this in a similar topic: viewtopic.php?f=9&t=7761&p=129173

Ooh, I see, thank you. Makes sense why the two it happened with were H0ly's sketches, when you get longer titles combined with a long name. So, just sticking a space before the word "Sketch" fixed it perfectly in this case.

Alright, this should be fixed now without requiring any finagling.
