You're right, the swish spider is not finding the links.  The reason is
that the page is full of HTML errors and they are confusing the link
extractor.

According to weblint v1.020 your page has 86 errors (196 if you don't
accept Netscape extensions).  Why don't you clean up your HTML and try
again.
