For what it's worth, I've run into this issue with XMonad docs before.

For example: <http://hackage.haskell.org/packages/archive/xmonad-contrib/0.7/doc/html/XMonad-Doc-Extending#Editing_key_bindings.html> has a line "See XMonad.Doc.Extending#Editing_key_bindings for instructions on how to edit your key bindings."; the source is "See "XMonad.Doc.Extending#Editing_key_bindings" for instructions on how to
edit your key bindings."

This links to <http://hackage.haskell.org/packages/archive/xmonad-contrib/0.7/doc/html/XMonad-Doc-Extending#Editing_key_bindings.html>. The source

At least in Firefox, clicking only reloads the current page, and doesn't go down the several sections to the key binding information. (When I tried with my offline docs, it didn't even reload, just errored.)
