Jira Link Issues with Summary

When mentioning a ticket in a Jira description field (TEST-123), Jira will automatically link that text to that ticket. Jira will also pull the summary field of that ticket and make it the title attribute for that link. Is there anyway to make Jira link issues with the summary as part of the inner html of the link. For example: Assume ticket TEST-123 exists with summary: This is Broken In another ticket's description I enter TEST-123 Jira renders that description like: TEST-123 - This is Broken

You would need to do a bit of coding to do that - amending the "renderer" that is drawing the links.
