htdig (again)

Sorry to bother you again, but I also just noticed that certain tags
which contain single quotes (') are not being treated correctly. For
example:

<A HREF='http://www.etc.etc/'> is treated like a relative url and
results in htdig looking for
http://www.et.byu.edu/directory/'http://www2.et.byu.edu/~username' which
obviously doesn't work. (The correct thing to do would be to treat
single quotes like qouble quotes, at least inside markup).

I think the single quote is considered valid in this situation, but I
know it's use is discouraged because some browsers (and apparently
htdig) don't understand it.
