The HTML snippets are in the variables $LinkPageExistsFmt and  
$LinkPageCreateFmt, but it is a little tricky to modify them depending on  
the permissions of a visitor for the "link target" page. It may be possible  
to change the link format based on the permissions to edit the "current"  
page rather than the "link target" page. Something like this near the END of  

  if(CondAuth($pagename, 'edit')) {$LinkPageExistsFmt = "your HTML here";}

At any rate, if a visitor doesn't have edit permissions and clicks on such  
an ?action=edit link, will only see a login form.
