Please try to compare the following two cases:

    <url url="http://bla.com/" name="BLA">
    <htmlurl url="http://bla.com/" name="BLA">

the former results in "BLA" in txt, while the
latter becomes "BLA <http://bla.com/>".

I think <htmlurl is more suitable when you want
to *hide* the bare URL from the text, e.g.
"mailto:...", "news:..." etc.

If you just want "<http://bla.com/>" in txt,
you can omit the "name" and write:

    <url url="http://bla.com/">
