Automatically Discover Document Links And Apply Class

$('a[href]').each(function() {
   if((C = $(this).attr('href').match(/[.](doc|xls|pdf)$/))) {
       $(this).addClass(C[1]);
   }
});

This will look through every a element on the page. If the href attribute of it has a .doc, .xls, or .pdf in it, it will apply the appropriate class name to it (e.g. class="doc")

    $(“a[href$=’.doc’]”).addClass(‘doc’);

    Although IE6 would degrade to a normal link, this can be done by CSS.


    a[href$='.doc'] { padding-right:16px; background: transparent url(images/doc.png) no-repeat top right; }

Posting Code

Markdown is supported in the comment area, so you can write inline code in backticks like `this` or multiline blocks of code in in triple backtick fences like this:

```
<div>Example code</div>
```

You don't need to escape code in backticks, Markdown does that for you. If anything screws up, contact us and we can fix it up for you.
