Hyperlinks not rendering properly

I am trying to put a hyperlink in my view and it is not being rendered
properly.

In my view, I have:

<%= link_to 'Search', 'google.com' %>

the HTML source when rendered is:
<a href="google.com">Search</a>

However, on the browser, it displays:

Search(google.com)

If I try and use a standard 'a href=', it does the same thing.

Has anyone experienced this before?

Thanks.

You're missing the protocol (http://)

That's proper HTML. Your app is doing the right thing. (Although you
probably want http:// in there.)

However, on the browser, it displays:

Search(google.com)

Since the HTML is correct, this sounds like a browser display setting.
What browser? Any weird plugins or strange CSS or JavaScript?

Try a different browser and see what happens.

Thanks.

Best,

Nothing to do with Rails then. Does it happen on all links or just this one?

Yes, I know "http://" should have been on the link - it was just a
rough example.
I resolved this... Turns out that it was the 'print.css' file from the
Blueprint CSS framework.

I've never used Blueprint before, but there ya go!

Thanks guys.
