FIX: You can no longer delete a hyperlink by clearing the Hyperlink Address field after you install Content Management Server 2002 SP2

This article has been archived. It is offered "as is" and will no longer be updated.
After you install Microsoft Content Management Server (MCMS) 2002 Service Pack 2 (SP2), you can no longer delete a hyperlink by clearing the Hyperlink Address field. Before Content Management Server 2002 SP2, you could delete a hyperlink by opening the hyperlink dialog box of an HtmlPlaceholderControl object and clearing the Hyperlink Address field.
This problem occurs because the hyperlink dialog box no longer removes the anchor tag from the ActiveX editor control in Content Management Server 2002 SP2.
