      Description

      We accidentally created an item without author or title. Fixing the problem was challenging because all the browse indexes use the author and title for the link text and web browsers don't allow users to easily browse to links with empty link text.

      When the skins are creating links, they thus need to be careful to ensure that all links have some characters in them. I'm not sure whether non-breaking space will work, but including a hyphen should.
