PDF supports hyperlinks (/URI). It ought to
be possible to find these and index them.

    The current approach to PDF files and others is to use
    external converters. So using /URI hyperlinks in PDF
    requires that the external converter translate appropriately
    (e.g. into HTML). So I don't see this as a bug in ht://Dig,
    but a configuration problem (i.e. using an appropriate PDF
    converter).
