this is a style sheet i created which inserts icons before or after links on a page in order to inform the user of whether these links open other programs, open new windows, use certain protocols, utilize javascript or plug-ins. this style sheet should work in any browser, but it is specifically tailored for users on mac os [meaning it goes quite well with safari] as it contains all the relevant data correlative to the quicktime plug-in's default file extension associations (amongst many other things), though i am sure it would prove useful to anyone using a graphical browser on any platform. if you have any comments, leave one here. if you have any suggestions, please feel free to discuss them with me, i encourage it. otherwise, enjoy!

note: although the screenshot only shows a few examples, this style sheet supports over 60 file types and over a dozen protocols.

Icon credit goes to Mark James.
Compatible with GreaseKit and GreaseMonkey.
