The problem is twofold:

1) A fair number of texts are not anywhere published by anyone in
electronic form, so the websites listed are simply those of the
copyright holders who gave us their internal master copy (e.g. UBS for
the Farsi versions)
2) People do seem to reorganise their websites all the time and break
continuity. I see no purpose in trying to run after this. Links to the
actual site rather than a specific page will need to do the job.
