Log message formatting - angle brackets please

Recommended Posts

While not necessarily a bug, it is a compatibility issue and it's been bothering me for a while. 

The correct format to wrap a URL is with angle brackets or spaces (per RFC 2396). If there is a likelihood that a URL will wrap, then angle brackets are preferred. Please change both the popup and variable formats to use angle brackets instead. 

Why? Regular expression matching for URLs assumes that parentheses are part of the URL. This means that when I copy and paste it into Notepad++ or almost any other program that can parse the URLs, it will treat the trailing ")" as part of the URL when generating clickable links. If it's a ">" instead, however, the URL isn't malformed.
