Unsupported URL schemes fail silently when called from JavaScript

Unsupported URL schemes fail silently when called from JavaScript.

For example, <a href=javascript:alert()> does not generate an error message or alert.

Reason

Unsupported URL schemes are not intended to execute in Adobe AIR.

Attempts to run such JavaScript cannot be made to generate error messages or alerts. This issue is a known limitation of Adobe AIR 1.0.
