Good point.

That will have to be addressed. Couple of options:

I think that should be fairly easy to do by flagging links that are 
created by output plugins in the skin/theme with a specific class. The 
tool can then look for such links in the page and publish them (doesn't 
work is a user manually adds such a link)


Assume page is foo.html, then scan the page for links to "foo.*" and 
render those pages too. Still doesn't work is the different format is 
linked from another site.

Interim conclusion:

We need to provide site validation tools that check all local links in 
the locally built site. These could be run on a deploy command.
