rdoc links to symbols not rendered into html properly

Reported by Stephen Bannasch | October 16th, 2008 @ 04:42 PM | in 2.x

The html generated by rdoc for rails is incorrrect when processing a link to a symbol.

For example the rdoc in the source file:


for the with_scope method has this section:

  # *Note*: the +:find+ scope also has effect on update and deletion methods,
  # like +update_all+ and +delete_all+.

Rdoc creates links for all three terms bracketed by "+" characters but the html generated for:


looks like this:

  +:<a href="Base.html#M001977">find</a>+

instead of this:

  <a href="Base.html#M001977">:find</a>

The html rendered for the entire paragraph looks like this:

  <b>Note</b>: the +:<a href="Base.html#M001977">find</a>+ scope also has
  effect on <a href="Base.html#M001984">update</a> and deletion methods, like
  <tt><a href="Base.html#M001987">update_all</a></tt> and <tt><a
