I don't know if this is a bug but see:

Fear not, I am still here and all is well. I'm beavering away on XF2 primarily, while Mike and Chris are hard at work bringing you 1.5.
The code that produces it:

Code:

It happens when you wrap a QUOTE bbcode inside a URL bbcode. I know this isn't usual but a member just did it and it caught my attention.

Thanks,

This is mostly down to HTML not allowing links to be nestable and how browsers attempt to fix the DOM if it runs into that. This isn't something we can easily fix and the browsers tend to do a better job in most cases. (For example, the link doesn't actually come from the content here; it comes from the attribution link. It can happen in content as well, though it generally gets resolved without a visual problem.)
