How to find all broken internal (intra-site) links in Joomla 1.5?

I revised the navigation in a Joomla site (which I did not create), and there are many links within pages that pointed to other pages, i.e. Visit Us page has a link inside the content to Access Map. Most of the links in the site were made to menu items, not articles, so there are many, many broken links. I am finding them manually, but I would love to be able to do what I used to do with Dreamweaver, where I would click a button and get a live list of broken links I could go through and fix.

Is there a web site that will do this for me, or is it a function within Joomla? I would think that a simple spider-like program could do it, so there should be a web service for it, but I cannot find one. It would also be really nice to have built into Joomla.

My question was not well-worded. I found the validator sites, but I was hoping for something within Joomla. After using the validator sites again, I realized that you just have to take your time with them. The scan is so complete that the amount of results was a bit overwhelming at first. Thank you for the advice. I now see that validator is probably better than a built-in Joomla extension for this.
