Probably just a cache issue. The links on
look fine to me and work fine for me.

If you still have trouble with that, you could go to the problem page, 
click its history tab, change "action=history" on the end of the URL 
to "action=purge" and hit Enter. That helps clear some stuff up 
sometimes. No sure what technically happens, but it refreshes cached 
stuff for the page.
