[LibX] PMIDs

Pubmed itself appears to be wrapping the IDs in XML which appears to stop LibX autolinking- 
<dl class="rprtid"><dt>PMID:</dt> <dd>22500190</dd> <dd>[PubMed - in process] </dd></dl>
I think it would be a great candidate for a Libapp.  Pubmed doesn't put in our resolver link until the user views citation level results - having the PMID autolink can get people to full text one step faster.
Thanks for considering.

Actually, PMID are part of the core feeds, please see:


and specifically


But this will only work if the 'PMID' prefix and the number are part of the same text node. So, for instance, if a site has:

<b>PMID:</b> 1234564

it won't work.

If you have a site where it doesn't work for this reason and you'd like it working - all that would be needed is a Libapp for it.  Sony and Rupen are working hard to make the libapp builder for public use, but Rupen is also entertaining ideas for libapps he'll write.
