Tastes and colors are a "touchy" subject and there are as many tastes as of colors. Moreover some people have a vision of the colors which does not correspond to the usual standards...
In short, at OF, until now we are not very gifted side color and even less side formatted (choice of the icones in particular).
Thus, if somebody has a little time and likes to perhaps seek things which "make pretty", maybe could he try to find us a continuation of icones (freely usable) which will be able to satisfy almost people and the Italian community in particular.
The need seriously starts to be felt for the icones because they are more and more used.
For the moment, it is only question of agregating links of icones packs.
After, it will be a question of thinking of codes of presentation so that the user by seeing such icone knows from the start what it means because he already saw it somewhere else (either in OF or which it is known: example the "prohibited direction").
But the problem of the code of representation is that it must be able to be used internationally!
For example, the cross in diagonal means exactly the reverse according to whether one is French or Anglo-Saxon. In French it means "checked", in English it means "not checked".

Here is the place to put links to icones packs.
