Re: Probably dumb newbie question.

you could use the <!-- noindex --><!-- index --> tags to comment out 
specific stuff. Although that would probably be tedious to do that 
for every link. But if your links are dynamically generated you 
could have what ever generates them put those tags around.

Just an idea.

Or alternatively, you could write a Filter that parses out the <a> 
tags (using HTML::Parser, etc if you like perl). It shouldn't be 
that hard. Then you'd just hand the rest off to the libxml parser to 
do the rest.
