find my newest testing gadget on

It's really rough right now, as in, if you click 'Back' in your browser,
it will flood the hell out of you.
(Does anybody know how to make iframe loads not go into the history?)

It's verifying that all links in the table of contents and search
actually have a corresponding id in the help files.
I didn't verify that all the entry hooks from the code actually have
entries, though. Like prefwindow, at least.
I didn't implement a reverse lookup, which would be interesting data,
too, AFAICT, id="foo" without a link to it, that could suggest that it
wants at least a search term.

I found no bugs in en-US, but one issue in de. So it seems to do something.

Comments welcome.

Hi, I have updated the extension to version 0.6. It now checks for the
entry points into help that I have found in the code, nameley:

From the help menu:


From the prefs dialogs:


I think I got them all, but this is at least a good start.

I hope it doesn't uncover any more new bugs, but I thought there's no
reason to not do it. As the two points can be kinda easily checked via
clicking in the interface, you probably tested all this anyway.

Note: I filed to get
rid of the help hooks in pageinfo that lead nowhere.
