Hi Phil,

There is a minor difference in the angle because I made it square, not almost square like the current one. Easier measurements too.

The “bad fallback” of 404.html is actually the fallback for the entire site, it comes from the wiki stylesheet.

Cheers,
Lea

Like I said previously, I think the error should be added in some hidden page in the wiki (the errors/ directory is temporary), for easier maintenance (and to get a proper search box too, with all the autocomplete stuff). Since nobody replied to my question about which errors do we need, I made all 10 digits in the WPD logo style, which you can play with here [2] to see how the various error combinations look. The SVGs would be soo much simpler if WebKit didn’t have the infamous bug with referencing external SVG files :(
