RFC: Trailing period in URLs not included in generated code
When a URL has a trailing period in a new message then the 'editor' should set the url to finish before the period.
ie In the following example:
Go see the news at www.cnn.com. Act fast..
The system generates:
Go see the news at <a href="http : // ww.cnn.com." rel="nofollow" target="_blank">ww.cnn.com.</a> Act fast..
Whereas I would prefer it generated:
Go see the news at <a href="http : // ww.cnn.com" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">ww.cnn.com.</a>. Act fast..
A trailing period is almost invariably not part of the URL and the benefit of removing these 'errors' in posts far outweighs the ability to have URLs with deliberate trailing periods.
Note that in the 'generation' above I have inserted spaces and reduced the url to 'ww' so the system doesn't see them as hyperlinks.
