ScriptRunner Behaviours is hidding links in helpText

Hi all,

I'm trying to display a link in description of a field using ScriptRunner's Behaviour but it is set as hidden (display: none) during rendering.

My code is:

def field = getFieldById("customfield_" + Constants.PB_DATE_CF_ID)
field.setHelpText("HELP TEXT <a href=\"\">HELP</a>")

and the output on the screen is:


I have no idea why. ScriptRunner's version is 5.5.9 and Jira version is 7.6.8 (sorry :))
