This happens only when the linking to sections in external site studio sites.
Before (the first two links below are to sections in the same site studio sites, the last two links are to sections in different site studio sites)

<p><a href="ssNODELINK/256">test</a></p>
<p><a href='<!--$wcmUrl("nodelink","257")-->'>test</a></p>
<p><a href="javascript:nodelink('232');">test</a></p>
<p><a href='<!--$ssNodeLink("219")-->'>test</a></p>

<p><a href="./sitemanager/index.html">test</a></p>
<p><a href="./files/index.html">test</a></p>
<p><a href="">test</a></p>
<p><a href="">test</a></p>
