Confirmed, good catch. This bug is in the generate_html package and affects any generated documentation for class methods. Since the HTML file goes in a subdirectory for the class, it needs an extra level of "../" in the reference back to the package index page.

see e.g. <http://octave.sourceforge.net/general/function/@inputParser/inputParser.html>

at the bottom of the page there's a link "Package: general" pointing to "../index.html", which is <http://octave.sourceforge.net/general/function/index.html>; it produces a 404 error.

it seems the intended target is "../../index.html" instead.

(not sure if the bugtracker is the right place to report this)
