 Thanks for pointers.
 Seems it will be impossible to use logic you propose seems given html
text and markup it's impossible (or very difficult) to decide whether the
given string is URL or not. But since most time URLs are the content of <a>
element, hyphenating URL won't be so harmful since target URL (href= value)
will survive.
