Here is another bug in the 2a15 code.

URLs appearing within the body of the message that already have brackets around them are not getting HTMLized correctly by 2a15:



This is what hypermail 2a15 would generate for the above two lines:

&lt;<A HREF="http://www.cni.org/&gt;">http://www.cni.org/&gt;</A>

&lt;<A HREF="http://www.cimi.org/about/how_to_join.html&gt;">


The problem, as you can see, is the nesting of the &lt; and &gt; when it gets marked up. The program appears to be adding the &gt; to the URL, and then attempting to build an HTML HREF out of it... Correct markups would be...

&lt;<A HREF="http://www.cni.org/">http://www.cni.org/</A>&gt;
&lt;<A HREF="http://www.cimi.org/about/how_to_join.html">


Haven't tested for other wrappers

   e.g. ( and )

        [ and ]

around the URL to see how 2a15 handles them, but I suspect they would be treated the same.
