Here's a mockup of the type of htmltext I'm working with. This one has three duplicate 
instances of the metadata:

<p spaceabove="3"><span metadata="12345">Suspendisse nulla neque, dapibus quis sapien vitae <a 
href="#fn4"><font size="20">* </font></a></span><span metadata="12345">in est metus<a 
href="#fn5"> porttitor ligula augue,<font size="20">* </font></a></span><span 
metadata="12345">tortor vestibulum adipiscing dignissim<a href="#en31"> nulla.° </a></span></p>
