To further clarify Lavonna's contribution:
If the links are generated using Exchange, they will not be lost
if you replace a page. However, if the links are generated
using FrameMaker (cross-references or hyperlinks), you
do loose the links when you replace a page. Unfortunately,
we learned that the hard way.
Frame generates two links for each cross-reference or hyper
link. One link on the originating page and one link on the
destination page. Replacing either page breaks the link.
Sometimes it's easy to fix the link in Exchange and sometimes
it makes more sense to re-generate the PDF file.
