For whatever reason there is this silly sign that should indicate that a
link is external.
It is a silly thing for two reasons:
*It does not show itself in an IE browser
*When it is used in a language that is left to right like Arabic or
Hebrew, it insists on being on the right side of the word in effect
blocking out the first character.
Could we PLEASE get rid of this silly thing. And if someone insists on
keeping it, could it be fixed so that it behaves properly ...
