Description Torsten Martinsen 2003-11-03 23:52:06 UTC
Links inside the HTML versions of man pages use <LINK> for links:

<dt><span class="term"><a name="ALLOWHOSTS"></a>allow hosts (S)
</span></dt><dd><p>Synonym for <link linkend="HOSTSALLOW">.</p></dd><dt>

However, <LINK> is not meant for this usage (http://www.w3.
org/TR/REC-html40/struct/links.html#edef-LINK):

Although LINK has no content, it conveys relationship information that *may* be 
rendered by user agents in a variety of ways (e.g., a tool-bar with a drop-down 
menu of links).

IMHO there is an <A HREF="HOSTSALLOW"> missing here.

This was a bug in the html generation.
It has already been fixed in the CVS tree, 
we just need to fix the build environment
an propagate the changes.

Closing it as fixed.
