email attachment icons

This is kind of a trivial question.
The other day, I was checking email on my ubuntu machine, and I saw that a
.doc that someone had emailed me showed up in gmail with a Microsoft Word
icon next to it.  That kind of ticked me off a little (grrr :-) ) - never
thought I'd see a microsoft icon on Ubuntu.  Anyone care to explain where
the icon image came from - it doesn't get embedded in the email, does it?

Note: the doc opens normally with openoffice (and the proper icon) once I
save it to my computer.
