Munged URLs (or "web links get corrupted" in non-geek speak)

I tried clicking on a link in the "Lavender infused honey" thread, and got an error because the software picks up any following punctuation in the text.

That is, the link to http://www.nhb.org/ got turned into http://www.hhb.org)/ because the link was included in a parenthetical clause - The poster wrote, "I recently discovered the National Honey Board (www.nhb.org) -- they've got tons of info on their site."

I hope this can be fixed with some URL-parsing smarts - it'll confuse a lot of people if the URLs continue to get munged this way.

Here's the thread:
