It's relatively common for pages, especially blogs or reference sites, to
indicate an off-site link by styling it specially.  

Exactly what "off-site" means is up to the author, but it usually refers to
something on another domain.  (In shared-hosting setups, it could also refer to
things on a different subdomain.)  The implication is that the resource at the
other side of the link is not under the control of the author.
