Problem with links in rails app - appending path after the text?

anyone have any idea on why my links are rendering the path after the
actual links text?

e.g:

<a href="/register">Sign Up NOW</a>

shows up in (safari/firefox) as

=> Sign Up NOW (/register)

The (/register) part shouldn't be there. Not to mention that you can't
select it. How the heck is this possible?

It's not browser specific, and the only plugin in my Rails app is HAML
but I've never experienced this with Haml before.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks!

Any plugins installed?
