Note about internal links
When creating a link to another page inside the curriculum, use Sphinx's built-in cross-reference mechanisms to achieve this.
linking to a top-level document such as "Text Editing 101" should be done inline, like so:
See :doc:`text_editing_101` for details...
where the name provided is the RST file path. The title will be linked to the document like so:
See <em>Text Editing 101</em> for details...
linking to a reference point, such as a sub-topic on a page should be done by creating a globally unique reference point, such as:
.. _gnu-screen: GNU Screen ----------
and using this inline anywhere in the docs like so:
See :ref:`gnu-screen` for more details.
The sub-topic's title will be replaced in the hyperlink as well.
After modifications to links, please run
make linkcheck to see the status of
all the links in the docs.
More on cross-referencing can be read in the Sphinx Docs.
