Not sure if you understand the problem at all.

The link you mention is NOT Java code. It therefore will get noticed
by Ht://Dig - However, if Java code needs to be executed in order to
create this part of HTML code, there will not be such a link.

Ht://Dig does NOT execute Java, JavaScript or any other client side
code. No indexer (AFAIK of) does. This is because the indexer might
get stuck within a generated document part where user interaction is
required. User interaction cannot be predicted by any robot (of course,
if you're able to write a really nice AI engine that does just this,
we would probably all be happy - except for the amount of CPU munched
up by the excuted code and the robot's AI).
