- Jul 16, 2006One of the common problems I run into is email addresses in HTML
documents getting misconfigured as a URL, vs. a "mailto:" link.
Is there a tutorial on creating If-Then-Else-Replace loops?
I want to set up a directory searching clip that checks URLs for the @
symbol, IF found check that URL Link to verify the "mailto:" part is
there, if found go to next, but if not found replace '<a href="' with
Then loop to the next hyperlink, stepping through all docs in the
directory. (screenupdate off for speed).
(This assumes that the @ symbol is an illegal character for URLs.) (If
so - I would assume that someone would build this as a link default into
the standards for browsers, that if the @ symbol, if found in a URL,
would be read by the browser as an email link, not a URL. but that would
be too logical....)
