References to "MARC" -- and a search-and-replace gone bad...?

I have inserted "(MAchine-Readable Cataloging)" into the text in 4.1.5.2 of
[1].  In [2] - in accordance with Gordon's suggestion - I also changed

    Developers will also no longer have to work with library-specific data
    formats, such as ISO 2709 and the MAchine-Readable Cataloging format (MARC)

to:

Gordon, is that correct?

In so doing, I discovered what appears to be the result of a search-and-replace
on references to "HTTP" that hit more targets than intended.  Stripping away
the accompanying text in Section 2.1.4 [3], the links in that section (and in
many others) look like the following:

    <a href="<abbr title="Hypertext Transfer Protocol"><abbr title="Hypertext Transfer Protocol">HTTP</abbr></abbr>://www.niso.org/standards/resources/Z39.50_Resources">Z39.50</a>

    <a href="<abbr title="Hypertext Transfer Protocol"><abbr title="Hypertext Transfer
    Protocol">HTTP</abbr></abbr>://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hypertext_Transfer_Protocol">Hypertext
    Transport Protocol (<abbr title="Hypertext Transfer Protocol"><abbr
    title="Hypertext Transfer Protocol">HTTP</abbr></abbr>)</a>

    <a href="<abbr title="Hypertext Transfer Protocol"><abbr title="Hypertext Transfer
    Protocol">HTTP</abbr></abbr>://www.iso.org/iso/iso_catalogue/catalogue_tc/catalogue_detail.htm?csnumber=41319">ISO
    2709</a><a href="<abbr title="Hypertext Transfer Protocol"><abbr title="Hypertext Transfer
    Protocol">HTTP</abbr></abbr>://loc.gov/marc/"></a> and the <a href="<abbr
    title="Hypertext Transfer Protocol"><abbr title="Hypertext Transfer
    Protocol">HTTP</abbr></abbr>://loc.gov/marc/">MAchine-Readable
    Cataloging</a>

    <abbr title="Hypertext Transfer Protocol"><abbr title="Hypertext Transfer
    Protocol">HTTP</abbr></abbr>

It looks like the problem is systematic in MainReport.html.
