Re: Semantic Web Icon Set in development - Suggestions please! :)

It's a good idea to share some visual markup to have some common
visual markup in documents.
It could be great to have a vector version of the icons (typically an
SVG version) so, it becomes possible to get the icon in web pages and
other documents using several size. I suppose you do them with a
vector tool like Illustrator, so it will be easy to get the SVG
