If they are links to a Microsoft (MSDN) page I wouldn't be surprised much if they don't work.  Microsoft is known to delete API documentation pertaining to older versions of Windows.  (They don't want anyone to develop applications for older versions of Windows.)

The landscape changes frequently too.  http://www.google.com/microsoft might be a good friend.

Additionally MSDN pages don't render well in many browsers.  Opera is one of the few that works.  Wine's Gecko (iexplore.exe) seems to render them well which is interesting because Firefox doesn't. They sure don't make it easy.

But yes, someone should run through there and try to fix the links (I'm sure patches are welcome as usual :D).
