The method is not perfect, and often fails with "complex" 
javascript. There is no way to perfectly detect "javascript 
links", even using javascript engines. This is a limit in 
all offline browsers, and I don't think it will be solved 
one day.

(Note that 404 errors should not consumme too much 
bandwidth, as only the return status and a small page is 
returned, generally)
