The javadoc of SimpleFormatter::format(LogRecord) method does describe 
the format argument is a java.util.Formatter format string.   Also the 
class description also links to this method.  So I think these two 
broken links can simply be removed and the spec about the formatting is 
in the SimpleFormatter::format method javadoc.  What do you think?
