In, for example, with win XP and IE7 the links in the first list you come to do not say anything but link
If you perform the same task with Firefox, the links text is spoken.

I have noticed this with some other pages, but the above example seems the easiest to show it.
This affects all nvda versions I have tried including the stable release. 2010 1 and subsequent snaps.
Unsure which nvda process to label it as or what priority to give it.

Shouldn't be too hard to fix in the MSHTML backend at all. The lin (a tag) has no children at all. We should expose its href in a freiendly way with getNameForURL as its buffer content.
