I'll bet you could pre-create most of the links every time you write an 
article. I mention Valley Forge, I think "there should be an article on 
that some day", and so I create the link right then. When the article is 
displayed, you check to see whether the target exists; if it does, you 
display the link; if it doesn't, you display the text without the link. 
That could at least make things easier in the future (maybe).
