Like I said, I'm dense. Seems like others figured out what you meant.

Are you creating these icons from scratch, or culling them from other

Without knowing the icon schema you're using (cartoon, pictograph, text,
image and text, color restrictions, etc) it's tough to make concrete
suggestions. For your document/product to have a consistent look and feel,
all icons should share the same style.

The "Dummies" series of books is pretty good at this sort of thing;
perhaps you should look through one or two of those for some inspiration.

William Horton wrote a pretty cool book called "The Icon Book" that has
lots of information and suggestions, and comes with a disk with lots of
"stock" icons.

Hope this helps...
