    Comment:
Forgot to mention that this patch also replaces entities with real spaces and removes border="0".
 Those changes are less significant.

Here is an overview of the issue:
---------------------------------------------------------------------
        Key: FOR-104
    Summary: Make alt tag on external links more meaningful
       Type: Bug

     Status: Unassigned
   Priority: Minor

    Project: Forrest
  Component: Forrest skins
   Versions:
             HEAD

   Assignee: 
   Reporter: Marshall Roch

    Created: Sat, 3 Jan 2004 4:12 AM

Description:
I agree that "->" is a better alt tag than "links outside of this site" for the little
icon after external links, but "->" does nothing to tell the user what the icon means (a
significant usability flaw).  Attached is a patch to change the alt tag to "(offsite link)",
which will still look fine without images:

_Example link (offsite link)_
