copy the icon from their site, view their css, modify ours ? ;-)

From the page source : 
<a class="ext-link"
class="icon">demo site</span>

From their css :
a.ext-link .icon {
  background: url(../extlink.gif) left center no-repeat;
  padding-left: 16px;

and here is the gif : http://www.edgewall.org/chrome/common/extlink.gif

But i don't know if their css/design is protected or not ?
