Thanks... I'll look at them again. I did finally find out on google,
after looking deeper, that it means the links in the toc are broken. It
usually happens when linking to a document. I didn't link, at least not
intentionally, to any other document other than this document to create
a link from one topic to another. So, I don't know exactly why I would
get this error unless I mistakenly linked incorrectly using absolute
addressing in the link.

Thanks for the reply. Now to go back again and see what links are what
links. :-(
