A potentially very helpful piece, though I would think such an unusual 
limitation should be documented.

It would seem reasonable to assume that this:

  This is an image:<img src="1234">.

...would result in the IMG tag itself being the character being used for 
the image reference, rather than requiring one to explicitely add one:

  This is an image:<img src="1234"> .

I'm chaning my code to accomodate this (and a lot of other changes that 
will make it easier to diagnose) and will report back what I find....
