On typing an URL such as 'www.example.com', the preview rendering of the text contains a link saying 'www.example.com' (as expected) but the edit text below the preview has been changed to say 'http://www.example.com'.
In other words, the edit text has had 'http://' prepended to the URL, but the changes aren't reflected until the next Preview.
If Submit is clicked without the 'http://' ,then the final result (as with the preview rendering) doesn't contain the 'http://' either.
Either way the link is clickable and works as expected, but the text has been altered, which may not be desirable.
The same thing happens with www links in url tags.
