So only the first such link will ever be encountered, at least by
the application?  Unless the application is running disconnected
from the Internet (e.g., the document was received in email)?  Then
behavior is undefined?  (Just asking.)

On the same line, if SHOW=INCLUDE ACUTATE=AUTO, does the processor
act on this info or does the application?
