The text-based browser Lynx or the Amaya browser/editor will both
automatically generate a table of links for an HTML file. Amaya will
also combine multiple HTML files into one big "book" file and then
build a links table for that.

Both are free software, included in most Linux or <whatever>BSD
distributions. For Amaya, including a Windows version, you can also
look at:

W3C (World Wide Web Consortium, the standards-setting body for the web)
also have HTML validating software:

http://validator.w3.org/

and an "HTML tidy" utility that cleans up various oddities:

I'm not sure if either of those checks links.
