There's a blue+underlined Hyperlink character style in the template.
Regular hyperlinks get formatted blue+underlined. Cross-reference
hyperlinks don't. If I apply the Hyperlink style to regular text, it's
formatted blue+underlined. If I apply it to a cross-reference, there's
no effect.

Seems like a bug to me.
