Hey Folks!

This is happening because the See Also Section [1] template lists all the
pages that are categorized as "HTML" pages [2].

I agree with Garbee, we can't choose which links will be displayed when the
template auto generate the list, so we can have a lot of unrelated
things.The same is happening in other pages that also have this section,
CSS pages for instance [3].

I also agree that manual related links will be way more effective and

But it's good to keep in mind that removing the automatic listing will
affect all the pages that are using this section.

Maybe instead of removing the section we could make the topics more
accurate, and doing this we also could have better suggestions.

Hope that helps.
