using 2-8-3dev.8 with the tagsoup option, both the above show as links
(i added them at to the example in today's other query):

   [1]____________________ [2]Confirm [3]
                                   click me
   [4]click me


   1. form field = text entry field
   2. form field = submit button
   3. file://localhost/home/purslow/tmp/clickme
   4. file://localhost/home/purslow/tmp/somelink

note that the former centres the linkname correctly;
both these (last two) link numbers & names are in boldface type;
i don't have colors enabled & don't know how to do that.
are either of you using tagsoup (see the Options Menu)?
