it should be useful if wikipedia links have a "link-wikipedia" class, wikisource a "link-wikisource" class, etc.
Actually it can be done with CSS3, supported by a number of the latest browsers.
or whatever ^= or *= you need to match the href. It doesn't need JS, CSS will work fine. It's already used for all the special icons like the mailto e-mail icon.
but could it be implemented in the software anyway ? *= don't looks enough reliable to me. for example if the link is [[s:all about wikimedia.org]] the result could be quite unpredictable.
a.exitw[href^=http://meta.wikimedia.org/] or similar would work, except that the language code comes before the second-level domain name, so you'd have to list all languages individually. Thanks for being backwards, DNS. :(
Not sure this deserves yet another collection of classes.
and it's not about hardwriting a "collection of classes" but more about generating classes dynamicly from the "sitematrix".
You can use a.exitw[href*=".wikipedia.org/wiki/"] selector. That's not perfect, but since having a couple of classes per project ([[s:Foo]] and [[wikisource:Foo]]) isn't much better, I think you better stick with it.
