Hi!
Now I got the chance to try it and it doesn't work:
site.xml
   ...
   <external-refs>
     icon_repository href="file://D:/tmp/icons"/>
   </external-refs>
   ...

iconlist.xml
   <ulink url="ext:icon_repository/SaveToDisk16.gif">Save</ulink>

Gives:
   error:ext:icon_repository/SaveToDisk16.gif

What's going wrong?!

Johannes
