Subject: Bug: Inconsistent formatting when terminating bold inside a link [9.3 (release_9.3 @ /usr/share/emacs/27.0.91/lisp/org/)]
Date: Sun, 21 Jun 2020 18:56:22 -0400	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <ef398386-2d64-4c57-b63a-74b688f64e0b@www.fastmail.com> (raw)

When you have a section of bold text that ends inside a link, for example:

  *can you [[http://foo.bar/][terminate *bolds* inside]] links*

Inside emacs it bolds the text "can you terminate bolds" and represents "terminate *bolds* inside" as a link, but if you export to any non-text format (I tested html, LaTeX to PDF, and ODT) then it breaks the link exporting the raw org-mode link syntax.

Expected behavior: I see three options. Naturally in HTML you can't do <b>can you <a href="http://foo.bar/">terminate bolds</b> inside</a> links so it could either

1. duplicate the bold tag:

<b>can you </b><a href="http://foo.bar/"><b>terminate bolds</b> inside</a> links

2. or the text inside a link could be considered an independent context from the outside text:
<b>can you <a href="http://foo.bar/">terminate <b>bolds</b> inside</a> links</b>

3. or the emacs rendering can be updated to accurately reflect the link being broken as it currently is in the exported output.

Reproduced the issue with `emacs -q`. Below is the version/config information:
