External Link Icons to distinguish internal from external hyperlinks in wiki text
No easy way for users to tell if a hyperlink on a wiki is internal or external. Would like to see an icon following external links, similar to MediaWiki.
MediaWiki-style icons by external links would be helpful to allow users to differentiate internal and external links within the wiki text. As shown on https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Help:External_link_icons they distinguish both by url scheme and file extension. Just indicating external links is highest value to me, but it could be useful to show file type icons (particularly for pdf) as well.
Links / references
Possibly related to issue gitlab-ee#2705 (closed), but this request refers to individual links within the wiki.
