Subject RE: antidote and Dean's Icons

Thanks for the update on the icons. I'll have to loook into the PNG

I actually edit the icons myself to add an alpha channel to the ones that I
use, and save them as GIFs. I'm definately in favor of using PNG due to it
being a much more flexible format. In the past I have had problems with
browsers rendering the alpha channel in PNGs, and didn't even think to try
it in Java. Thanks for the tip.
