While discussing this about the XHTML image, we forgot about the thing
that I mentioned about it, which was that the part of the checkmark that extends
outside of the button doesn't have a transparent background. This makes the 
button OK for pages that have a white background, but not for pages that have
a color other than white. Like I said, since the angles of the checkmark are
45 degree angles, they don't warrant antialiasing which would be a reason not
to make the image transparent.
