Hi ,I didnt receive your second mail. [ There is something wrong with
the mails delivered by Mailman :( ]

Regarding the dictionary icon, another change would be to use 'Aa'
instead of 'Uu'. And the size is 48px , While mostly the 24px would be
used in menus. So, ideally we'd want the 24px icons done first.

There is an issue of file size. The icons are to be saved as 'Plain
If you notice the humanity-icon-set, it has more icons than breathe but
is *nearly* one-fifth the download size or when installed. 
So we need to maintain the icons as small as possible. Use as less nodes
as possible.
For instance, for the letters, *I guess* , you'v used the pencil tool to
draw the shape but that makes use of several nodes eventually the file
size is very large. Instead if we use the text tool to draw the
letters , we can get the icons to nearly one-third the size. 
Combining the similar objects helps reduce the file size too.
The strokes for the highlights also need to be 1px.

Give me a couple of weeks. I'll get the main guidelines up.


PS to all: There seems to be some problem with the Mailman server or
somewhere . I'm not receiving all the mails that are sent. Sometimes i
receive the replies to a message but not the mail message itself. For
instance, I didnt receive any of kwwii's mails, but I get the responses
from the others first. Nor did i receive Oliver's mail. While the
archives show the mails.  Sometimes the mails arrive very late too. 
So, if i havent responded... I havent received the mail ;)
