What are you using to create the webpage?  Some programs may create a relative link to the temp files of the linked websites on your own machine, which obviously would cause a problem when the file is uploaded.  Or if they're not fully qualified their might be a "lost-in-translation" issue going on.

To be certain, I'd find the URLs for the hyperlinks and make sure they're fully qualified... (e.g. "http://www.experts-exchange.com" vs. "experts-exchange.com").

Cheers and goodluck
