but one link I did come across in a site looked like this:
How would one extract links like these in a safe and reliable way? I could
just extract the HTML filenames from the string, recreate the URI for the
link, and pass that back as the link. I haven't tried this yet because I am
busy with some other work, but I will have a chance inside the next week or
so. What is interesting about the site I was looking at was that there was
no way into the site except via links of this type.
