Date Sun, 04 Dec 2011 06:26:02 GMT

             Bug #: 118666
        Issue Type: DEFECT
           Summary: Hlink tag not fully removed from Microsoft Word 2003
                    XML document when hyperlink is deleted
    Classification: Application
           Product: Word processor
           Version: OOo 3.3
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows 7
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: minor
          Priority: P5
         Component: save-export

Created attachment 77059
This file has a url that has not been deleted

Environment: Win7, OOo 3.3 Writer

When a URL is placed in a document and saved in MS Word 2003 XML format and
then the URL is deleted, the Hlink tag is not deleted only the nested "<w:t>"
tag is deleted.  The result is that the URL is still within the Hlink tag in
the "dest" attribute.  This could result in a URL that was never intended to be
published to be discovered as well as cause potential document bloat.

Steps to reproduce:
1.  Open Writer and invoke the Hyperlink dialog box by clicking the Hyperlink
2.  Insert a Hyperlink by entering a url in the "Target" field (I used, select "Apply", and close dialog box
3.  Select "File"/"Save As" from the menu
4.  Input a file name and select "Microsoft Word 2003 XML (.xml)" and click
5.  Select hyperlink and delete with delete button on keyboard
6.  Select "File"/"Save"
7.  Open file in a text editor and do a search for "<w:hlink" - note that the
Hlink tag is still present with the "dest" attribute set to the website that
was originally saved.

Expected result:  No hyperlink tag to be present in document - no indication
that a hyperlink had been saved 
Actual result:  Hyperlink tag is present with "dest" attribute set to deleted
