Bug: Include from other Web links ACRONYMS

Acronyms like TLA are linked automagically only if the acronym topic exists, this is spec. Links to acronyms across webs is done but has two issues:

Issue 1:

  • When you include a topic from another web, WikiWords and acronym names get fixed by prepending the other web's topic name so that the links work. This does not work as expected for acronyms.

Issue 2:

  • Referencing an acronym topic in another web works as expected if the topic exists.
  • If the topic does not exist, the web name gets removed, which is unexpected, e.g. when writing a file name like "Image.JPG" that looks like an Otherweb.TLA link.

Test case for Issue 1

  • In current web create topic ACRONYMTEST
  • In another web create topic AcronymTesting; write ACRONYMTEST in it
  • In current web create new topic and INCLUDE Otherweb.AcronymTesting
  • You get an erroneous link to ACRONYMTEST.

Test case for Issue 2

  • Write: Image.JPG
  • You get: JPG
  • After fix: Image.JPG
