When I've got 2 pages and the contain (among other things) this:

page1.html
-----------------------------------------------
<meta name="robots" content="noindex,nofollow">
<a href="/page3.html">page 3</a>
-----------------------------------------------
page2.html
-----------------------------------------------
<meta name="robots" content="index,follow">
<a href="/page3.html">page 3</a>
-----------------------------------------------
(contents of page3.html not relevant at the moment)
robots.txt doesn't exist.

Crawlers will follow the link on page2.html and find page3.html, allthough page1.html tells them not to go to that link.

I know, it's a really silly question, but I just want to be sure.
