Greetings!

I lamented a while ago about URL handling in Org. To provide a concrete example, below is a shell script that Org does not export correctly to HTML. More specifically, Org considers the script to be a URL. Further, and amazingly, even if I change “see <URL>.” to “see <URL> to learn more”, Org *still* does not parse the URL correctly, even with a valid URL per RFC *and* surrounding angle brackets (<>) *and* spaces on both sides.

    fetchmail "$@"
    RETURN=$?

    [ $RETURN -eq $RETURN_OK ] && exit $RETURN
    [ $RETURN -eq $RETURN_NO_MAIL ] && exit $RETURN

    RETRY=$((RETRY+1))
    echo Retry \#$RETRY:
done

echo Failed after $RETRY_MAX retries. >&2
exit $RETURN
