This problem was experienced by some other users as well. 
I don't understand perl so I can't provide a patch, but a nice work-around 
is available.

The following latex code produces a correct link:

          target=\_blank]{A}{You may click to see my homepage. }

The backdraw: This is equivalent to \htmladdnormallink, there is no 
\htmladdnormallinkfoot equivalent.

A suggestion for the 'future':

Could the \htmladdnormallink...[%1]{%2}{%3} commands be redefined to call 
\HTMLcode[%1, HREF=%3]{A}{%2} ?

There should also be a small change in the section 4.1 'Hyper-links in LaTeX'
about the optional argument. This would be a 'quick patch' and allow the latex
part to work as usual.

Regards, Steffen
