Prat 3.0

459 - Custom Filter not preserving profession links

What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. Make a custom filter to highlight and substitute the word "bg" as ">bg<", and the same for "BG" as ">BG<".
2. Wait until someone in trade uses whatever profession contains that text (not sure but I can find out if you are having trouble pinpointing).
3. Watch as the link is mangled and becomes no longer clickable.

What is the expected output? What do you see instead?

I expect profession links to be left alone, and probably not to be scanned at all for matches (or maybe an option, in case people want to watch for someone advertising a certain enchant via profession link?), but in either case don't mangle the link.  Provide a secondary line of output for the match maybe if you can't touch the link line without harming it(?).

What version of the product are you using?

3.0 3.4.6

*IMPORTANT* -> Can you reproduce the problem when ONLY Prat is running?

I don't rightly know, but I'd reckon so.

Do you play on US or EU. What language do you use?

US/EN

Do you have an error log of what happened?

No, but I can get a screenshot or further clarification if you need.

Please provide any additional information below.

    Custom filter searching for "enchant" There are several profession links that include the word "enchant" in their id. So this custom filter breaks all of these links.
