Hmm, the description here doesn't really give enough detail
to know what's going on.  Can you create an example page in the
Test group on pmwiki.org that demonstrates what you're describing?

Links are basically treated as normal text with the same flow
characteristics as any surrounding text -- by default there's
not anything that says to change the formatting based on the
presence or absence of a link.
