Bug Description

Steps to reproduce bug:

1) Open to edit pub file with CSS file referenced to HTML files.
2) Remove that CSS file from EPUB file.

Expected result:
Edit-book should also remove all references from HTML files. Fox example:
<link href="../Styles/custom.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />

Current result:
References exist:

Warning [7 / 37]
OEBPS/Text/001.xhtml (line: 9 column: 0)
The resource pointed to by this link does not exist. You should either fix, or remove the link.

It does not do that by design. Removing a resource could be the first
step in replacing it with something else, so removing all references to
it automatically will make it much harder to track down all locations
where something else should be done.

What I could do is add an auto-fix option to Check Book for this type of
error, which auto-removes all links pointing to the missing resource.

The auto-fix option will be definitely great and for my needs completely sufficient :)

Fixed in branch master. The fix will be in the next release. calibre is usually released every Friday.
