Thank you Michael!!

I've been using FM since version 2.0, and I have to admit that if I ever knew 
this shortcut, I had long since forgotten it!

Subject: Re: Validating all hypertext links in a FM book?

Hi Grant,

In addition to the validation of cross-references during book updates  
there is another, not very well-known feature of FrameMaker to  
validate Hypertext links based on gotolink markers. The keyboard  
shortcut should be

Esc v h (presumably for: validate hypertext)

I guess it works, like the cross-reference checks, from file to file  
and does not take into account if a target document is part of the  
current book.
