I'm opening a new ticket because this one was closed 4/3/16 without the problem being fixed:
http://help.obsidianportal.com/discussions/suggestions/947-quotation-marks-break-links

This issue goes back to 2011:
http://help.obsidianportal.com/discussions/problems/4098-quotation-marks-issue

When a link is placed on the same line as a open quotation mark, the link code is displayed rather than a functional link, as demoed here:
http://schiann-s-test-campaign.obsidianportal.com/adventure-log/links-and-quotation-marks

Both Character/Wiki-Link-button code and HTML code break:
[[:second-character-name | Second Character Name]]
<a href="http://schiann-s-test-campaign.obsidianportal.com/characters/second-character-name">Second Character</a>

Only the links generated by the chain-looking link-button work:
"Second Character":http://schiann-s-test-campaign.obsidianportal.com/characters/second-character-name
