Are you supposed to be able to use a hyperlink name as the target for another hyperlink?

Because the insert footnotes/endnotes function does not produce endnotes that link back to the text anchors in exported pdfs as referenced in the Bug 38187 record, I have been creating endnotes using bookmarks and hyperlinks instead of the insert footnotes function. I just discovered that I can produce endnotes that link back to the text anchors in the pdfs by using a hyperlink name as the target of another hyperlink, thus avoiding making bookmarks as hyperlink targets. My question is are you supposed to be able to do this? It seems to work very well and saves the time making bookmarks as hyperlink targets.

The odt file I attached contains another problem I have been having with hyperlink records. If you look at the hyperlink records in the navigator or in the edit hyperlink dialog you will observe that the hyperlink text field content has been separated in many of the hyperlinks. It did not look like that when I first created the hyperlinks and saved the file but later it got that way. It does not affect the functionality of the hyperlinks in the odt file or the exported pdf but something is causing this. I am wondering if this has to do with the fact that I do not have java on my computer. Do you have to have java installed for LibreOffice Writer to function correctly?
