Help! I need core util docs ! :)

I just tried to visit this page and use the http://www.gnu.org/manual/manual.html and the "coreutils" link and
it takes me to another page and I tried the "HTML on one page" it
keeps expanding the URL until it looks like:


and keeps going and going....

I tried it in both MSIE and Firefox.

I could not reproduce the problem with the Mozilla 1.7 bundled with
Solaris 10 (Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; SunOS i86pc; en-US; rv:1.7)
Gecko/20060627).  It properly resolved the link to:


and I was able to read this.

I likewise, with a version of Mozilla either compiled from source or
obtained via Debian (listed in the About page as Mozilla 1.7.12
Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.12) Gecko/20050922),
failed to reproduce the problem by simply following links from
http://www.gnu.org/manual/manual.html as described - but, if I go to any
version of the given problematic URL (the simplest form I've checked
then the link simply recurses as described. I'm not sure that that's
worth fixing, because there is or should be no way to get to a URL of
that form - i.e., with the extra "coreutils/" in it - via links from
elsewhere on the site, but the behaviour does appear to exist
