One of the icons currently not following Wikimedia DSG's icon guidelines is external link icon:
New, icon guidelines adhering external link icon:
- Ensure that we use Accent/link color for icon as it is part of the clickable area
- Use smaller version of the icon (an OOUI indicator following 12px canvas) to provide crispiness on lo-dpi screens
- Use 15px padding-[right in LTR/left in RTL] em equivalent for placing icon in link correctly. Preferred over 16 in Vector base font-size environment.
Note that icon color always follows link normal color. Visited styling is not possible due to browser security & privacy functionality.
