I quote:
If one is going to use graphics to help people who cannot
handle words, one needs a standard set of graphics across
web sites (ideally across browsers as well). This happens
to a large extent with physical products.

Now I may be speaking out of turn, and I have no conformation of this what 
so ever. But an alleged rumor whispered in my ear a few months back is 
Brookes University is working on this as we speak, if so then Gatesy could 
be paying for the research (speculation) If this alleged rumor is correct 
then it will (could, may, possibly) appear in a later version of explorer 
(ie6 or 7 perhaps? again pure speculation and rumor)

If this does happen then by default a standard will be set.

Is there enough ambiguity in this email to avoid writs? If not, I plead 
insanity now.

Thanks, by the way for the constructive comments. Very valuable.
