      When a paragraph contains a hyperlink in Xinha, a bug arises when the tag for that anchor is 75 characters or longer due to a long title and/or target. While the document will appear normal after saving and closing, the next time the page is edited, and a change is made, all paragraphs containing long tags will begin with a single whitespace. This space can then only be removed by editing the html source, and the page will revert once again if any change is made.

      Steps to reproduce
      1) Create a document consisting of paragraphs like

      <p><a title="looooooooooooooooooooooooong title" href="http://www.google.com">75 tag</a></p>
      <p><a title="long long long long long long long long long looooong tag" href="http://www.umd.edu">long long long long long text</a></p>
      <p><a title="short tag" href="http://www.longlonglink.long.com/longlong.html">long link</a></p>

      or with any anchor tag 75 characters or longer

      2)Save and close

      3)Edit, make any change, and close

      It seems once a document is saved, a newline is inserted between the <p> and <a> when the <a> tag is sufficiently long, but once the html is processed again, this \n is converted into a space.
