Description: Here are a couple examples, where dataset links appear as part of search/list pages:

1. Dataset search

The dataset link underlines each individual word, and makes it bold and italicized.

Question: why isn't the entire name underlined? Individually underlining each word in the dataset title makes it look like there are multiple links.

See http://localhost:8080/dataset/search?q=PonTaurus+collection&TYPE=OCCURRENCE and attached screenshot for Pontaurus Collection.

2. Constituents list page

The dataset link is not underlined, nor is it bold or italicized.

Comment: Underlined words in the search are only matching query terms, not links. Links are always blue (apart from some few exceptions which we might want to reconsider, but not on seaarches)

Comment: These examples at least feel right to me and Id vote for closing this as wontfix

Comment: Thanks for explaining underlining/bold/italic words are only matching query terms. Is it really necessary to underline it though? Google uses bold, non-italicized matching query terms for example. I find our approach a bit confusing.

The underlined style of words that match query terms had been discussed with Diego. It is different from Google, but let's roll with it.

Closing issue.
