There was a similar, relatively recent (Aug. 31, 2015) discussion on the [HATT] list, "Thoughts on styling/denoting internal vs. external links".

I think you have to join the group to read the archive messages, but I'm not positive. The thread is here: https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/HATT/conversations/topics/81991.

Some great points, and excellent CSS styling details for if you decide to code internal/external links differently in an authoring environment/output where CSS is useful. And there was also discussion of including a little icon (globe/world or something like that) to indicate that the link is external.

HTH,
