Mediawiki & Dokuwiki distinguish these links automatically. Of course
that's because in the wikitext it's clear which links are internal & which
are external. In dokuwiki:

- external links start with http://... (or https://...). They're shown
in blue, preceded by the globe.
- internal links don't have the http:// in front. They're shown as
green.

It's been a while since I've worked with Mediawiki. And I've worked very,
very little with Sharepoint wiki. But maybe it acts similarly.
