I had found that link (the sitepoint tutorial) but from what I  
understood, that script only works on links that are within the same  
page. I'm talking about links that go to other pages. From my limited  
javascript knowledge, I didn't see a way to adapt that script since  
it specifically tests if the link is within the same document.
