It's sort of relevant to web pages, too:

`M-x eww RET http://permalink.gmane.org/gmane.emacs.devel/178392 RET'

Of course, the <a> text could just contain "http://facebook.com"; without
any RTL, like

<a href="http://myspace.com";>http://facebook.com</a>

shr should warn when the <a> text is also an URL and when it's
different from the href.  But in this case, the <a> text and the href
are identical, so that check wouldn't do anything helpful, and the user
would end up on the dreaded Myspace...
