Custom hyperlinks described here: https://www.accesstomemory.org/en/docs/2.5/user-manual/add-edit-content/formatting/#formatting are not displaying as expected.
Recreated in Allied Materials area, existence and location of originals, and existence and location of copies; also on static pages: test appears as written.

I suggest re-testing just to be sure, but if this is 2.5, then the old custom link syntax not working is expected. That's because of issue #12148 - in 2.5 we are adding full markdown support via the Parsedown library, which will replace our custom syntax. As such, in 2.5, once you turn on the markdown setting in Admin > Settings, you can create hyperlinks like so:
[my display text](http://my-link.example.com)
We haven't updated the documentation yet, but since people are starting to test 2.5, this is a good motivator to do so!
Note that in 2.5, a new task has also been added to convert the Redmine-style former syntax links to Markdown:
php symfony i18n:custom-link-to-markdown
See #12149 for more info.
