Thanks for the report.

You may have some PHP recipe that has a closing "?>" marker, or 
something else. I'll adapt the regular expression for the next version 
to ignore any trailing spaces or newlines.

I'm not sure how is best to implement it -- if you use a "what you see 
is what you get" editor and you type a literal title in a page, would 
you expect the software to change it to something else for some reason?

It is possible to add some markup for "current title of remote page", eg 
if your link text starts with "+" like "+Other page".

Or, it is possible for the editor to check if the link text and the 
remote title are exactly the same (case sensitive), then save "+" as a 
link text and on the next page read use the current remote title. 
(People may still be startled if they type a link text and it changes.)

The prompt box does accept a page "name", if you type one. If you type 
something with spaces or other special characters (including dot or 
slash) the link will point to a "normalized" page "name" in the same 
group (capitalized, spaces removed) and the link text will be whatever 
you typed (you can change it in the editor).

Again, this was intended for novice/occasional non-expert users who may 
not know or who forget the difference between a page name and a page 

If you have a better idea for how to change the prompt text to something 
more informative, we can change it.
