I believe there are only two links?

And "that looks" is really one link for "that" and an underline for for "looks".

But I can not tell just from a glance.

Personally, I wouldn't use this feature (both because of numbers 1 and 2 above and because I don't care about the difference in destination) and would revert imported text using multiple link colors to the default. But that's just me.
Agreed... if something like this were implemented, it is one of the first things that would have me looking for a way to permanently disable it across all Realms.

How about we make the links blink?

HTML5 and CSS3 are tools that must be used with caution. :)

+1! Love this idea, as it would make loads of mechanics references a lot less painful.

Agreed. The value of visual cues comes from using them sparingly. Over-used, they are an eye-sore. Used sparingly, they draw attention to the points where they are present.

I remember years ago going to help support someone who had used the Windows 3.x customization to turn all the colors into a mix of canary yellow and hot pink/magenta. That's one of the few times I can say I really thought "it makes my eyes bleed" to be an appropriate description.

Yes, we will keep asking for more until we break it, won't we.

Although I agree with the idea I would not have as many links in a sentence as this example. I would probably only link one time to the article orcs.
