jumplink is a user defined function, and could be called almost anything
the programmer liked.  Most often these things take a URL relative to
a base which is included in function definition.

If this function didn't have side effects, it could be written as
javascript:location.href='.......',  or more simply as ...... :-).

(It may be stereotyped code from a particular authoring tool, so might
be predictable for all pages produced by that version of that tool.)
