That is not the way to use \href . It takes 2 parameters, to cope with
both the anchor-text and the link target.

I think what you want is:


which should work with both pdfTeX and LaTeX2HTML, since
with the former, the hyperref package loads also  url.sty .

With LaTeX2HTML, you may need to also load the  html  package
to get this working properly.

Have you checked whether the '.' is an active link ?
That is what your coding specifies for this.
