Actually Mozilla would let you do this using XLinks rather than HTML 
links. In fact, you could make your html:a element an XLink too so it 
works in both IE6 and Mozilla. Something like:

<item xmlns:xlink="http://www.w3.org/1999/xlink";>
   <html:a href="http://..."; xlink:href="http://...";>...</html:a>

Of  course you could also use XSLT in both Mozilla and IE.
