[b]: <>

The output href contains <>, but the original docs say it should work:

The link URL may, optionally, be surrounded by angle brackets

and it works on every major implementation except peg-markdown.

If I could turn back time, I would not allow angle brackets like your implementation: it is better to have a single way of doing things.

But what is done is done, so until we have a markdown specification, it is better to be compatible IMHO.

Discovered with the Markdown Test Suite at karlcow/markdown-testsuite#50 .
