CSS to disable icons to the right of external links?

Anyone know how or if it’s possible to apply custom CSS to remove the “external” icon to the right of external links? (shown below)

In case you want to try and find out how to customize this while someone answers, I recommend looking at Getting comfortable with Obsidian CSS.

For within Obsidian itself, try

.external-link {
  background-image: none;
  padding-right: 0px;
}

The first line turns off the image. The second line removes that space that was created to hold it.

@dcb Thank you - that worked! And thank you @argentum for those links. I need to spend some time digging into CSS and using DevTools, and this is going to be helpful.
