Hyperlinks in XAML with invalid URIs

We are creating XAML files from Word documents using Aspose.Words. We then use the WPF XAML viewers to display the converted documents. (Specifically we are creating a flow document XAML package using the Beta feature.)

When a Word file contains a link with a URI that cannot be parsed as a .NET Uri object, we cannot load the resulting XAML. For example, we have a technical document where Word has identified the string http://server:portNumber/ as a URI (just like this form engine just did). Aspose converts this to a Hyperlink in XAML.

We feel that Aspose.Words ought to have some code to validate the URI that is used for a XAML hyperlink to ensure that the resulting XAML is valid. For the time being we have some code that scans the Word document and replaces invalid links with about:blank before saving as XAML.
