Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't Homesite for creating web pages and not for help files?

If it is a web you're talking about, the Explorer part of FrontPage will verify every link, internal and external, and mark the ones that had a problem. You can then verify or fix the broken links.

I used it to check about 300 links for my site and while it took a hour or two, it did verify them.

Hello all:

I'm interested in site management software to automatically verify the
links in my help files as this has been a very tedious process in the past.
I downloaded the evaluation copy of Homesite 3.0: what a great product for
the price! I created a project and checked the links and it spit out every
anchor link as an error. I'm wondering if I'm doing something wrong, or if
there isn't support in the product for checking these links.

I document browser-based software applications for a financial software
company. I provide pdf files and HTML-based help by single-sourcing using
Word and HTML Transit. Also, is anyone else who is single-sourcing doc
using any other site management packages?

Thanks for any help you can provide,
