Nice one Doug. I think this is a good idea.

Ok, Doug has a reasonable point here.

Seb, by this, Doug means https://twimg0-a.akamaihd.net/profile_images/52124215/css_normal.png

Can you make a quick mock up of this in WPD style? I suggest we do this and get moving quickly, unless anyone has any other ideas, otherwise this could drag on forever. Then we can think up a better icon later on, perhaps waiting until the W3C have thought about it?)

ok, works for me. Is that ok for you, Seb?

Seb, are you about to get a simplified version done? Maybe just a two or three pronged tree, with the prongs all the same size?
