Foswiki Extra Icons FamFamFamFoswikiExtras

So far built by Foswiki:Main.SvenDowideit based on the Silk ones above, except for
  1. the XML icon - which comes from http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:XML_icon.svg
  2. the targets which are based on - http://www.favicon.cc/?action=icon&file_id=37384
  3. the Universal edit icons are based on the current (dec 2009) svg
  4. hand made done, closed, todo, updated icons - yes, ok, so i'm not an artist.
  5. external sites icons like skype are made using their favicons
