Sorry, but AFAIK this is not possible with the docbook version used for 
the GnuCash help and guide. If it would be possible, there would be some 
usercase where this would not be a good idea: for example in pdf, mob 
and epub files of guide and help, although the linking would be great 
for html and integrated help.

This deserves to be a bug that I will correct soon. IMHO this is not a 
recommended way to link guide/help because it will not work if you don't 
have an internet connection.
