In IE 7 and 8 it's not possible to set a Link Class in RTE by selecting i.e. E-Mail-Link, internal Site-Link or any other type.

To reproduce:
Go to TYPO3 Backend, chose an existing Site and add or edit a default Text or Text with Image content.
Set a Link and push open the Link-Settings-Button. Then enter any type of link - let's take an E-Mail link. Under Style (Stil in German) you can select the suggested "E-Mail-Link" and press "Set Link (DE: Link setzen)".

The popup window closes and the focus turns back to the RTE-Field. The strange thing about it: in Internet-Explorer, the Link-Class is not beeing applied.

Is there any Workaround for this behaviour?

In Google Chrome, Firefox, this seems to work pretty well.

Thank you for having an eye on it.

By the way: I am using 4.7.1, Gov-Pack

does the problem still exists within newer versions of TYPO3 CMS (6.2.9)?

as far as I can see it works in TYPO3 CMS 6.2.3. Tested with IE 8.0.760.17514
