Thanks for the report.  This is indeed a bug in the link checker.  I have
created a minimal reproducer here:


I haven't examined why it happens yet, but "&lt;style&gt;" in the <meta> element
of target.html (as well as your elemente.htm) causes the link checker to fail to
find any anchors in that document.  It's only the specific "&lt;style&gt;"
string that causes problems, others seem to be fine.

Side note, completely offtopic: the "&lt;sub &lt;" and "&lt;tfoot&gt;, &lt;" in
your keyword list look inconsistent with the others in it... ;)
