DOI hyperlink stopping short

Hello Everyone
We have some references that EndNote is inserting into the bibliography (in word document) with the hyperlink stopping part way through the DOI
I can manually paste the DOI in or edit each affected hyperlink in word and then they are OK

The common factor seems to be the < (less than sign) in the middle of the hyperlink
The links are broken at the < and only the first part of the link is active
When you click on the active part of the link it goes to “DOI not found”
e.g.
Cheng, L.-L., Bowser, P. R., & Spitsbergen, J. M. (1993). Development of Cell Cultures Derived from Lake Trout Liver and Kidney in a Hormone-Supplemented, Serum-Reduced Medium. Journal of Aquatic Animal Health, 5(2), 119-126. http://doi.org/10.1577/1548-8667(1993)005<0119:DOCCDF>2.3.CO;2

Follett, J. E., & Schmitt, M. K. (1990). Characterization of a Cell Line Derived from Inconnu. Journal of Aquatic Animal Health, 2(1), 61-67. http://doi.org/10.1577/1548-8667(1990)002<0061:COACLD>2.3.CO;2
I am using the DOI field and have the same output whether the style inserts the "http://doi.org/ " or it is part of the DOI field
I am on X9 but can replicate this in EN20 using windows PCs

EndNote Support says this is a word issue but it only occurs when EndNote creates the bibliography so I am not convinced. I would love to hear your thoughts. Thanks

The culprit, in the end, could really be Word.The data from EndNote is inserted in some kind of XML:

I can imagine that Word’s algorithm gets confused when it tries to apply the linking after expanding the angles from &lt;...&gt; to < ... >. As far as I know, the linking is not part of the EndNote Plugin functionality but performed automatically by Word.
