Wikipedia links

Okay folks,

There are times when I'm reading a WIKI article and several of the links are in red. What kind of link is that? I'll prolly kick myself when I find out the answer, but I'm curious.

Red links mean there isnt a page for it yet

Example for those who don't know what he means:

On this Wikipedia page, if you go to Timeline of notable events you will see some red links

For example, if you click on one of those links you will receive the following: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Henry_Dyke_Sleeper

It merely means that a page on that subject/topic or whatever doesn't yet exist. The status of the link will change when a page is created for it, and it will no longer appear in red.
