I didn't know that about Java, that seems really unfortunate as SVG's
are great (they are vector based so the do not become pixelated).  I am
not sure exactly what you are saying by your e-mail, though...  Are you
saying the box icon theme should also have png files, or are you saying
that for web use it is not possible to use it with Java.  I don't use
Java (yet), I use JavaScript, which can be coded directly into SVG
files, and can be used to manipulate the SVG, and whatever else...  I
have only experimented a little with the capabilities, but since SVG is
in XML format, all JavaScript should theoretically be possible (even
calling an external script), though I have not tried this yet, though
maybe others on this list have and know whether it is possible or not.
