Hi Doug, Chris,

I'm at my main client office today and there's a proxy, so it'll be a
little hard. But I can do it tonight.

For the HTML, I'm not sure: the shield is okay for us but for a beginner?
The angle brackets would make the icon too busy but it is worth the try.

Dom looks great, I put it in the style and let's go.

Seb.
