Ticket #7894 (closed Bug: fixed)
Pasting links in IE8 and IE9 no longer working as expected

When pasting links into CKEditor, IE automaticcaly detects the links and converts them into anchor tags. Although the HTML IE generates for this is mal-formed, this used to work quite well in CKEditor. However from 3.5.3 onwards there is a change in this behaviour and extra links are now generated for the pasted content in IE8 and IE9.
To see an example of this, paste the following content (which was generated by IE) into the source view of CKEditor in 3.5.2 and then in 3.5.3. Then switch back to wysiwyg editor and see that the first word on line 2 has been incorrectly converted to a link in the 3.5.3 version.

We realise that this is essentially a browser issue since the HTML generated is not valid. However we would be interested to know why there is a difference in behaviour between the 2 CKEditor versions. Was there a code change in this area to address another issue? Also, do you think there is any way we could potentially work around this browser limitation for CKEditor 3.5.3 onwards? Any thoughts or comments you have on this would be greatly appreciated.
