Currently each variable has its own topic, and is included in TWikiVariables to create large document. Many variables point to related variables. These references are anchor linked - pointing to other variable descriptions in the same topic. This works for the large include topic TWikiVariables, but not for the individual topics, resulting in lots of broken links.

The variable topics therefore need to distinguish between being standalone or being included.

The syntax for related links would then be:

[[%IF{"'%BASETOPIC%'='TWikiVariables'" then="#"}%VarREVINFO2][REVINFO{"format"}]]

It is a simple change, but I am not sure if this fall within the code freeze.

This is documentation that cannot break the code. It is always OK to improve docs and this one is a pretty good one to fix.
