A lot of web links to MDC (including most links of Goggle Doctype) are of the form

This was the preferred form of Google's "duplicate content" mechanism before the MDC update, now they link to "(There is currently no text in this page)".
We have lost page rank and confuse users.

Can we have a REDIRECT 301 for this?

BTW, currently those links redirect to
which is useless.

The correct solution for this is to correct the links on Google Doctype and elsewhere, as they're using obsolete links.

However, we already have a separate bug filed about these faulty redirects.
