I haven't verified this, but I think it does.

Yes, this is important for files containing doxygen documentation. I
suppose it's also possible that a program could output a URL when run -
so it might be in a string. There's also quickbook and restructured text
files to consider.

But links that don't end up in html files should also be checked -
people read the source.
