Steps to reproduce

Tested with Edge version 37.14316.1000.0.

Create a test page with the following link:

<a href="default.html" id="c">What a cute, yellow
            <span id="b3" class="b">back</span><span id="b4" class="b">pack</span>.</a>

Search for the link using the “link text” strategy by POSTing the following data to "/element":

    "using": "link text",
    "value": "What a cute, yellow backpack."

Edge renders the link with the visible text "What a cute, yellow backpack.". However, MicrosoftWebDriver responds with a NoSuchElement error.
