LJ not correctly parsing <link... > tags.

It looks like LJ isn't correctly parsing the <link..> tags to extract 
the server URL.  In particular, it isn't processing entities in the 
href.  Example:

<link rel="openid.server" 
href="http://www.schtuff.com/?action&#x3d;openid&#x5f;server" />

That's a valid HTML link tag that uses two entities in its the value of 
its href attribute.  Those entities should be processed before the 
attribute is used, meaning the actual value extracted from that 
attribute should be "http://www.schtuff.com/?action=openid_server".

At the moment, LJ's consumer code is not extracting that properly.  Will 
that be fixed?
