I don't understand. Are you trying to point out this cool feature or a
possible bug?

If you notice, all links on that page that point back to that page
have the same effect. A quick look at the source reveals the
following: <b class='selfreference'>Markup Extensions</b>. Sure
enough, some code has striped the links and replaced them with a
styling hook.

How do you implant this? That is a good question. Perhaps someone else
could shed some light on that.

Is this a bug? No, I'd say a feature. Having a page link to itself is
actually frowned upon for various reasons. If I knew how this worked
I'd be likely to use it myself.
