Is there a way for external programs to use Evernote's own note links (not the note URL)?

I use a lot of note links within the Evernote Client and within the web site; I'd also like to use them in external programs e.g. in outliners, or in the emacs text editor. So far, I've been using the URL from the Evernote note's web page. But there's a problem with this when I'm offline; clicking the link in my external program sends me to a web browser, and of course, that doesn't work. So, when I'm offline, I'd like to access the note cache within the Evernote client.

For this, it seems necessary to use the note links that Evernote uses internally -- the long ones like this:


Is that possible, and if so, can a click on that note link (while in an external program) access the note as stored in the Evernote client?

In general yes. If the Windows client is installed on the device then the Evernote: links will open the note in the Evernote Windows client.
