Default Faulty Hyperlinks

WebPlus is giving me faulty custom hyperlinks when I use three hyperlinks with vertically stacked words on the same lines.
See svdptucson.org.

The first hyperlink near the bottom displays correctly. The second hyperlink splits the phrase into two hyperlinks. The third puts the last letter of the phrase into a second hyperlink. I am very carefully highlighting the words to be hyperlinked. Don't tell me I am making a highlighting mistake. Is there anything else I can do to fix this?

This looks like a bug to me, and I am using the latest version of X6. How is this problem passed along to Serif?

The text in the second box looks like it is two paragraphs; in other words you pressed the keyboard 'Enter' key between "for " and "the".

In the third text box it is evident that the last character is a different font style.

Archibald has pinpointed the problem for you. The 'e' is in Normal-C-C1 while the rest is in Normal-C-C0.

I'm not sure why you are putting them in single cell tables either. Why not use a HTML text box and use centred text and adjust the top padding?

. . . . . . why not create something really stylish by using the Button Studio in WebPlus? . . . . just because you want two lines of text?

That's the 'ammer Archibald, push the boat out and live it up a little.

Perhaps apply some CSS transforms and animations for the on hover as well. Have the button rotate or such.

Default Re: Faulty Hyperlinks

If anyone wants to apply a hyperlink to text and split the text over two lines, either adjust the text box width or padding to force the line to split where required or use a 'soft' return (shift + enter).

A soft return will insert a <br> element into the line of text, as this is an inline element it will not break the link into two:

Code:
<a href="somepage.html">Walk for<br>the Poor</a>
