1) /.+/ is too greedy. You should use something like /[^"]+/ or /.+?/ instead
   (second is supported only in Perl-compatible regexps). The best solution
   could be /[^'"]+?/ however.
2) /<a / doesn't match "\n" after "a".

   $body = preg_replace(
       '#<[Aa]\s[^>]*?[Hh][Rr][Ee][Ff]\s*=\s*([\'"])([^\'">]+?)\1[^>]*?>' .
       '<A href="\2" target="_blank" class="down_txt">' .

   This regexp is not perfect, but I hope it has enough margin of safety, at
   least if your HTML code is more or less correct. E. g., all href values
   must be quoted and '<', '>', '"' and "'" without special meaning must be
   written as HTML entities.
