navigation patent claim

Might a patent cover the way links on a web site point to other pages on that site? ZDNet UK is reporting about a letter sent to a museum site, apparently from an American Telecommunications company asking for licensing fees that could equal up to five percent of the company's revenue annually. The patent referred to in the letter, titled "structured document browser" is here, and the museum site includes links to the patent infringement notice they received here.
