This bug report was seperated from bug 5236 (see there) after discussion
about the missing tiny link icons (external.png for http, lock_icon.gif for
https and so on) in Opera 8.5x (and maybe other versions). The icons are
missed for a couple of days now (probably since the change of order of
wikibits.js and monobook.js on 2006-03-16, but that's unverified).
Especially for external links these icons are badly needed for consistency
and maintenance of Wikimedia's sites. Think about the policiy "no external
links in the article body" ;-) People also want to know in general when they
leave the site.
Presumably a new OperaFixes.css or another quick hack could help.
Thanks a lot in advance.
In http://en.wikipedia.org/skins-1.5/common/wikibits.js there is:
var is_opera_seven = (window.opera && document.childNodes);
This variable is also for Opera 8.x, I think (->childNodes ->
looks if the version number is shown -> that's the case in Opera
7/8 and 9?)
Bug 5355 should solve the problem that is described here in this
