    guess the short-buffer streaming mode of anomy makes that problematic.
    Perhaps it's better done by a file_list_scanner, either:

    1) lynx -force_html -dump %FILENAME %ATTNAME
       that's what I'm doing, no html at all pls ;)
    2) use some html-cleaner, eg htmlclean:
       HTMLCLEAN(1) User Contributed Perl Documentation HTMLCLEAN(1)

           htmlclean - a small script to clean up existing HTML

           htmlclean [-v] [-V] file1 [file2 file3 ...]

           This program provides a command-line interface to the
           HTML::Clean module, which can help you to provide more

       in Debian something using such is in pkgs:
       $ dpkg -S htmlclean
       wml: /usr/lib/wml/exec/wml_aux_htmlclean
       libhtml-clean-perl: /usr/share/man/man1/htmlclean.1p.gz
       libhtml-clean-perl: /usr/bin/htmlclean <-- you may want just this!
       wp2x: /usr/share/doc/wp2x/filters/
       wp2x: /usr/share/doc/wp2x/filters/
       wp2x: /usr/share/doc/wp2x/filters/

    never had such problem - not using inline log at all, so can't tell anything
