This would work also. I would like to be able to make this distinction
in HTML though. Simply to keep in the spirit. There also seems to be
something in HTParse.c that is causing that example URN to be invalid
since HTParse.c: scan() function makes the assumption (which may be
a correct one according to the current URL spec) that no other colon
should exist beyond the first one. This is causing HTParse() to turn
the above into "URN:rfc/822" by basically looking at the first colon

Is this correct?
