What complicates matters are syntaxes like:
<a title="linky thing" href="foo.bar"></A>
To make something that covers all cases, you couldn't just lazily scan all
text while spewing out text that is contained between "<a href="" and """.
That's where standards like XHTML and standards-compliant pages come
handy. As far as I know, Google are very fond of standards, which is rare
among other large companies.
