Yes, I know there are clip-art libraries that can be used. If I had more
semantic web tools I would have thought harder about searching for existing
stuff, but it seemed just as easy to make my example (it took about twice as
long as I expected though so next time I will start to think about ways of
doing it in a more re-usable fashion). Besides, this way I have no copyright
hassles at all - it is mine (published under W3C copyright rules) <grin/>.

Yes, I thought of those ways of clarifying the "do-don't" bit. I just haven't
got around to playing with the image again yet.
