Patch against CVS HEAD (525 bytes, patch)
2005-12-15 17:48 UTC, Rob Church

Description Goplat 2004-10-14 14:24:15 UTC
from main.css:
#bodyContent .plainlinks a {
    background: none !important;
    padding: 0;
This will override the #bodyContent a[href ^="http://"] 
rule that comes before it in main.css, but not the 
#bodyContent a.external rule in the later included 
IE60Fixes.css. The padding here needs !important too

Should fix it.
Comment 3 Brion Vibber 2005-12-15 23:04:43 UTC
Seems to work fine on IE 6.0; no need for a patch?
Comment 4 Rob Church 2005-12-15 23:05:33 UTC
I have to admit to not having confirmed the bug prior to patching it...:$
Comment 5 lɛʁi לערי ריינהארט 2005-12-17 07:40:48 UTC

In one case IE shows the icon twice; this is bug ...

Comment migrated from bug 4338:

"In the Opera web browser the "plainlinks" are not shown as they should. There
is a gap between the link and the following letter or full stop (the external
link symbol is only hidden, but not removed)."

Comment 8 Melancholie 2005-12-21 23:36:07 UTC
This has to be added to main.css:

#bodyContent .plainlinks a {padding: 0 !important}
             .plainlinks a.external.text:after {display: 
none !important}
Comment 9 Rob Church 2006-01-02 14:54:40 UTC
Should now be fixed in CVS HEAD.
