How do you know if the current link is the "right something?" Do you
want to determine that the link actually makes contact with another
topic (i.e., that the link functions) or that the link contacts the
specific, pre-determined topic (i.e., that the context IDs are correct)?

I have edited some Help projects and have always worked my way through
them by clicking the links and checking the destination.
