The reason I didn't go ahead with that patch IIRC, is because there
appear to be *three* places where the hyperlink gets set, and the patch
sets two of them, but not the two that really matter. i.e. there's the
inline hyperlink in the field itself, there's some hyperlinks stored in
the DocumentSummaryStream metadata, and then there's hyperlinks in the
data stream associated with basically some FormField structure linked to
I think my patch set the DocumentSummaryStream one, but hacking
documents manually showed that word used the FormField one if it exists
over the metadata one, so I don't think the patch is quite right.
Noel was playing with the fieldfield stuff IIRC, new parsers and the
like, which might have some bearing on these, at least on getting the
parser right to read the same hyperlink value as word reads.
