Hi There,

I am developing a simple cross platform GUI using PyQt. I have tried to show
the about dialog using QMessageBox.about() with richtext formatting with
html tags (<b>, <br>, and <a>). The dialog correctly renders the HTML but
the links are not working.

Interestingly, when I tried the QMessageBox.aboutQt() to show the "About Qt"
dialog, the links in that dialog doesn't work either. Same with the "About
Qt" dialog form the help menu of Qt Designer also.

Is there any workaround for the issue? Or is it a reported bug?
