Invalid HREF Url crashes converter

Having a href in an anchor that is invalid causes the converter to fail. An example is a just having a scheme such as http or https.

private static void HrefParseError()
    const string html = "<html><body><a href='https://'>Error</a></body></html>";

    using (var document = new Aspose.Html.HTMLDocument(html, "."))
        Aspose.Html.Converters.Converter.ConvertHTML(document, new PdfSaveOptions(), "out.pdf");


Can you please also share which API version are you using at your end?

We first noticed it in 21.8 but have been able to replicate with the current version 23.9. The exception raised is “Failed to parse URL: https://”

Thanks again.
