Beautiful Work - Pretty's up boring external links
Hi, im writing this to say thanks alot, it helped to pretty up my website Essential Flash Games - where im offering external links to other great flash games sites via the weblinks core module.

this added the very nice favicons to most of the links i added, some missed maybe due to retrieving the image restrictions on individual sites, but over 80% seem to be fine.

Anyway, just thought i would add my 2 cents for a future update; maybe add a custom css class for the images for padding ect, as the images were alined too cloesly to the links before i added some padding right.

thanks again for this one
