Comment 1 Roan Kattouw 2009-09-12 21:42:44 UTC
Fixed the link dialog in r56248. I didn't fix the table dialog, nor did I forbid users from inserting links with a valid target but empty text. The latter has a practical use for power users, and while the former does not, I'm not sure we want to forbid it. CCing team for discussion.
Comment 2 Calcey QA 2009-09-29 05:01:54 UTC
Added keyword babaco to the bug
Comment 3 Roan Kattouw 2009-09-29 12:07:58 UTC
Inserting empty tables is no longer possible, nor is inserting a link with an invalid (or empty) target.
Comment 4 Calcey QA 2009-10-01 06:51:40 UTC
Verified and Passed.
