Local link highlighting, redux

Tantek clarifies his position regarding explicitly styling links as class=”local” with some very good points. Although I still don’t like the idea of having two ways of telling whether a link is local (the URL, (implicit) and a class (explicit)), because of the danger of inconsistency, he makes a very good point about degrees of locality; it might well be very useful to class links with finer granularity than just “local” or “external”. And he makes a very neat point about adding similar classes to a user stylesheet. Actually, it might be quite nice to style links to “javascript:” URLs with a big red X before them, or as text-decoration: strike-through, or something, to warn myself. I must start thinking about user stylesheets more; could be an invaluable guide to my in-head parser for the web. ——-
