1. http://www.r-project.org/posting-guide.html includes
"Paul Johnson's R tips page is a organized collection of how to do things in R,
with many questions and tips culled from R-help"
"R tips" is a link to http://www.ku.edu/~pauljohn/R/Rtips.html.  I get a message
the page is no longer there when I try it.

Desired state: delete or point to an active version of the document, unless this
is some transitory problem.

2. http://www.r-project.org/posting-guide.html includes in the section
Surprising behavior and bugs, "make sure you read R Bugs in the R-faq."  The
latter is the link http://cran.r-project.org/doc/FAQ/R-FAQ.html#R%20Bugs, which
takes me to the page but not the section.  The link on the FAQ page to that
section is http://cran.r-project.org/doc/FAQ/R-FAQ.html#R-Bugs (i.e., no %20).

Desired state: update the link.

You also might want to consider footers on your web pages saying "to report
problems with this web page do xxxxx".  The pages I looked at didn't have this
info, as far as I can tell.

I hope this is an appropriate place to let you know!

Thanks for your work on R.
