Hmmm, search the web for FREE graphics...

No discussion necessary, i think ;-)

Since icons in RR are nothing more than IMAGES!!! displayed in 
these images have just to be a RR-compatible format:
(Remember: we set the icon of a button to the ID of an image!)

JPEG (no transparency)
GIF (1 Bit transparency possible) or
PNG (8 bit tranparency possible)

Yes, see above...
(...although it WILL look better on a mac most of the time ;-)

Hope that helps...
