This is an SVG format so I really like it as it is small in byte-size 
yet Scalable in image-size.  I will try to add TM to it with my limited

No worries.  I'm happy to work on this, was just waiting for feedback.

@Rémy - let me know if those changes addressed your concerns.

I'll wait a bit longer to see if anyone else raises any issues that 
should be addressed.
