metadata from amazon errors

searched, and didn't find any reference to this issue. What I'm seeing, is when the amazon review has links, the links just get dropped, no conversion to text or anything.
ISBN 9780671578275 is the example I'm looking at, seems the italics <em> code works, but anything that was made a link in the review is just dropped on import, and I'm not seeing where the <strong> code is coming from, even looking at the source of the amazon page. Even the source on the amazon has typos, must have been processed from another source in a way that screwed up accented characters, but the dropping of links that are part of sentences is just confusing to try to read.

Open a bug report for it and I'll take a look at it. I'm traveling right now and I'll most likely forget otherwise.
