Knowing which links in a webpage link to an external source and which are within the book can help in readability. As part of sr #109106, I noticed that the French CSS has an interesting solution to this problem (by placing an arrow before the link name). Here it is:

@media screen {
#content a[href^="http://"]:before,
#content a[href^="https://"]:before { content: "\2197"; }
#content a[href*="fsf.org"]:before,
#content a[href*="gnu.org"]:before,
#content #home a[href^="http://"]:before,
#content a[href*="upgradefrom"]:before,
#content table a[href^="http://"]:before,
#content table a[href^="https://"]:before { content: ""; }

Maybe other solutions (instead of putting an arrow) would be to change the colors of such links.

But anyway, it may be interesting to add a link identification system to mark links to external pages in Gnuastro's CSS.
