I took the liberty of uploading these to the wiki and creating a page 
for them [1], which I think makes it much easier to track and evaluate 
than the crappy bugzilla interface. (Maybe we should upload images to 
the wiki instead of Bugzilla, and just add links there?)

I like these!

I do have a few nits to pick, though... of course. :)

1) The CSS WG (as a whole) doesn't like the strong association of CSS 
with the HTML5 logo, so I suggest doing something other than the badge 
shape (I don't know what... the W3C CSS "building blocks" logo is 
indistinct); this definitely needs changing, though.

2) The HTML logo should probably just be the badge shape, not the 
"semantics" brevets... it could just be the badge without the "5" in the 
middle, to keep it simple

3) The DOM logo is a bit busy, though I like the idea! Can it be 
simplified? Maybe put the brackets on the sides? < (simple tree) >

4) The bookmark in the book seems a little distracting to me (but I 
don't feel strongly).

I can live with all of them, except the CSS one, so I say put them in ASAP.
