Hyperlinks are gone when converting from epub to fb2

Hello!

I need to convert a book from epub format to fb2. Calibre does the job quite well with one exception. All the links to footnotes are gone after processing. Original epub contains a few dozens html inside. Each link in those html refers to another html from the epub, i. e. there are no external links. Example of such link:
<a id="filepos8243" href="dummy_split_041.html#filepos1154881" class="calibre9"><sup class="calibre27">note</sup></a>
(I guess, the epub-file itself was created with Calibre, but all my efforts to find the original file failed.)

After conversion the link turns into:
<sup>note</sup>

Besides I tried to convert it to other formats as well (to htmlz and zip). The result is OK, links are preserved. I'd be grateful for any ideas on how to fix it for the case of fb2.

Links are not supported by FB2 output.

Thanks for reply. But I'm not quite sure I follow. Fb2 certainly supports links!

Or, you mean, Calibre can't export fb2 with links? If so, do you you know whether the developers plan to add this feature in not-so-distant future?

Yes FB2 supports linkes. Calibre's FB2 output does not.

I have no intention of adding links to FB2 output in the near or distant future. There is no easy way to do this. The input's calibre accepts can have links pointing to arbitrary elements. In order to support links in FB2 every link would need to be checked, rewritten, moved and possibly merged before processing to FB2.
