Thanks for the discussion on the remaining icons to be finalised last night. Some good thoughts here.

My opinion:

* Seb's CSS icon rocks, and we should go with it. Looks much better and more intuitive than either the CSS building blocks thing, or the W3C CSS3 logo thing.
* For the HTML icon, we should go with just the shield, as I think this is well known enough now, and it works in the space provided. Having the shield with the angle brackets inside would defo be too busy
* I really like Doug's mockup up of a new DOM icon. Seb, are you happy with it.

Let me know if you are able to come up with a finished icon set today. I think the others are basically finished, and all you need to do now is draw up a new DOM icon.

Does that work?
