That functionality is not in htdig-3.1.1. (I just wrote it some
week ago...)
 Last thing I heard, it will be in 3.1.2 or possibly 3.2 (Gilles
or Geoff may want to fill in here).

It is a new attribute to put in your configuration file, named
"extra_word_characters", defining a set of characters to be
considered part of words.

As it is now, (non-digit) characters that are not defined as
word-characters in your locale are considered to be
word-delimeters, unless (as you know) valid_punctuation says
they should just be ignored.
